“The problem in defense spending is to figure out how far you should go without destroying from within that which you are trying to protect from without”
“Every gun that is made, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed”

“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”
