A Quote

"I had recognized the foe I was to fight - false heroism that prefers to send others to suffering and death, the cheap optimism of the conscienceless prophets, both political and military who, boldly promising victory, prolong the war, and behind them the hired chorus, the "word makers of war" as Werfel has pilloried them in his beautiful poem."

Stefan Zweig as quoted in the book Human Smoke by Nicholson Baker.
