„Apparently some fire-eaters to-day have been saying "Never again must we allow ourselves to get into the same condition of military unprepardness, so we are going to build up a vast war machine in this country in order to surround defeated Germany with a sea of peaceful tranquillity…" It looks as though the consequences of defeat will be more desirable than those of victory.“

Hansard, House of Commons 5th series, vol. 402, col. 1559.
Speech in the House of Commons on 2 August 1944.

1940s, Victory broadcast (1945)
Kontext: We have known the bitterness of defeat and the exultation of triumph, and from both we have learned there can be no turning back. We must go forward to preserve in peace what we won in war.
A new era is upon us. Even the lesson of victory itself brings with it profound concern, both for our future security and the survival of civilization. The destructiveness of the war potential, through progressive advances in scientific discovery, has in fact now reached a point which revises the traditional concepts of war.

„Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.“

—  Sun Tzu ancient Chinese military general, strategist and philosopher from the Zhou Dynasty -543 - -495 v.Chr

Original: (zh_Hant) 是故勝兵先勝而後求戰,敗兵先戰而後求勝。
Variante: Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
