― Jessie Reyez

“In this constant battle which we call living, we try to set a code of conduct according to the society in which we are brought up, whether it be a Communist society or a so-called free society; we accept a standard of behaviour as part of our tradition as Hindus or Muslims or Christians or whatever we happen to be.”

― Jocko Willink

“What makes you a SEAL, what makes you a SEAL is being a good tactician on the battle field, understanding how to shoot, move, and communicate, knowing small unit maneuver warfare.

“Belly buttons were a big battle of mine. Down at the syndicate, they would clip them out with a razor blade. I began putting so many of them in, in the margins and everywhere, that they had a little box down there called ‘Beetle Bailey”s Belly-Button Box. The editors finally gave up after I did one strip showing a delivery of navel oranges.”

“The soldiers who serve in uniform at the front are our real heroes. They fight a battle every day to protect the integrity of the nation.”

“The idea that women are innately gentle is a fantasy, and a historically recent one.

― Nikos Kazantzakis

“I think you should check out ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ because it really is a sci-fi movie, but it’s not. It’s not like anything you’ve seen before. The best way to describe it is it’s a war movie that happens to have aliens as the enemy.”

― Noel Fisher

“Cities are where the climate battle will be won or lost.”

― Patricia Espinosa

“War has always been a part of science fiction. Even before the birth of SF as a standalone genre in 1926, speculative novels such as ‘The Battle of Dorking’ from 1871 showed how SF’s trademark ‘what if’ scenarios could easily encompass warfare.”

“Recruiting is tough because you have to stay in the battle. You’ve got so many guys that are going after a certain amount of kids.”

― Penny Hardaway

“What I like about the third movie is you get to see a side of Carlisle you haven’t seen before. You actually get to see what his vampire capabilities are because there’s some great battle sequences. It’s my favorite book. Carlisle is holding on to that humanity. He doesn’t want to be a vampire.”

― Peter Facinelli

― Phyllida Lloyd

“I think that genetically we’re programmed to battle each other.”

― Pierce Brosnan

“Courage in danger is half the battle.”

― Prabal Gurung

“Our police officers are on the front line of a battle to maintain control of our streets.”

“I like to get in a battle I can win.”

― Robert Kraft

“Piracy was risky business, and injuries were commonplace; a single lost limb or gouged-out eye could end a pirate’s career. To encourage pirates not to hesitate in battle – and out of a sense of fairness – many pirate crews compensated wounded crewmen in predetermined amounts.”

― Robert Kurson

“Violence, as it is for the mafia and most other criminal organizations, was bad for pirate business. By doing battle with prey, pirates risked damage to their own ships and injury to their crews. It also made them bigger targets for law enforcement.”

“Half the battle is selling music, not singing it. It’s the image, not what you sing.”
