Dictatorships start wars because they need external enemies to exert internal control over their own people.

Hitler and Mussolini were only the primary spokesmen for the attitude of domination and craving for power that are in the heart of almost everyone. Until the source is cleared, there will always be confusion and hate, wars and class antagonisms.

Bob Riley

For ultimately, the only way to win wars, is to prevent them occurring in the first place.

Wars should be over in three days or less... and the American people must be all for it from the outset.

Evan Thomas

All wars come to an end, at least temporarily. But the authority acquired by the state hangs on; political power never abdicates.

I think that George Lucas' 'Star Wars' films are fantastic. What he's done, which I admire, is he has taken all the money and profit from those films and poured it into developing digital sound and surround sound, which we are using today.

Uri Geller

Middle age snuffs out more talent than ever wars or sudden deaths do.

John Knowles

There are no black film composers doing the likes of Star Wars, doing the likes of E.T., doing the likes of Jurassic Park. There are none, nor will there ever be one. That ain't about to happen!

Roma Downey

At home it's all Batman and Star Wars and they do gang up on me. Sometimes I don't want to dress up as Darth Vader or play train sets, so I'll go out for a drink with the girls.

Sadie Frost

George Lucas wanted this moving camera for all of the photography in Star Wars. He was willing to take a risk with the concepts that I advanced with regard to ways for doing that.

John Dykstra

I want to make someone walk straight, but I've left my sons nothing but wars.

No doubt Western civilization has in the past been full of wars and revolutions, and the national elements in our culture, even when they were ignored, always provided an unconscious driving force of passion and aggressive self-assertion.

If the graves of the thousands of victims who have fallen in the terrible wars of the two races had been placed in line the philanthropist might travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the Lakes to the Gulf, and be constantly in sight of green mounds.

I can't get my head around the fact that the technology of the first two movies, which are forty years prior to Star Wars, is so much better than any technology they had in Star Wars!

I see lots of cycles, for sure. There's the whole post-Star Wars era, but I don't think it's the whole story.

Rob Morrow

As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation's wars.

John M. McHugh

I was born in 1961. Now I think the 16 years that elapsed between 1961 and the end of the wars is nothing. To a child growing up it felt like an eternity, an entirely different world.
