Carl Clausewitz

Carl Clausewitz

German military theorist
But the main point is that soldiers, after fighting for some time, are apt to be like burned-out cinders. They have shot off their ammunition, their numbers have been diminished, their strength and their morale are drained, and possibly their courage has vanished as well. As an organic whole, quite apart from their loss in numbers, they are far from being what they were before the action; and thus the amount of reserves spent is an accurate measure on the loss of morale.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Never forget that no military leader has ever become great without audacity.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [09/30/2011 11:09:34]

Architects and painters know precisely what they are about as long as they deal with material phenomena.... But when they come to the aesthetics of their work, when they aim at a particular effect on the mind or on the senses, the rules dissolve into nothing but vague ideas.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
