[quote author=Arkay link=board=general;num=1048641892;start=15#25 date=04/03/03 at 08:42:29]<br>An eye for an eye leaves both of us blind.<br>- by Someone[/quote]<br><br>I love this quote, but I've usually heard it as "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." They had Ben Kingsley as Ghandi speak it in the movie "Ghandi", but it's not attributed to the mahatma.<br><br>How about this one - "War is too important to be left to the generals" - Georges Clemenceau. Problem is, it's too important to be left to W & Co as well!
