„The prospect of a humane war may be hideous and all the other names you can think of, but it's still a prospect. And as an alternative to all the other things that could happen in the event of war, it's relatively acceptable.“

— Don DeLillo
Context: Of course the humanistic mind crumbles at the whole idea. It's the most hideous thing in the world to these people that such ideas even have to be mentioned. But the thing won't go away. The thing is here and you have to face it. The prospect of a humane war may be hideous and all the other names you can think of, but it's still a prospect. And as an alternative to all the other things that could happen in the event of war, it's relatively acceptable. Ch. 16

„I reject the notion of football as warfare. Warfare is warfare. We don't need substitutes because we've got the real thing.“

— Don DeLillo
Context: I reject the notion of football as warfare. Warfare is warfare. We don't need substitutes because we've got the real thing. Ch. 19

„I think what'll happen in the not-too-distant future is that we'll have humane wars.“

— Don DeLillo
Context: I think what'll happen in the not-too-distant future is that we'll have humane wars. Each side agrees to use clean bombs. And each side agrees to limit the amount of megatons he uses. In other words, we'll get together with them beforehand and there'll be an agreement that if the issue can't be settled, whatever the issue might be, then let's make sure we keep our war as relatively clean as possible. Ch. 16
