„I still think its probably the most evil of all pursuits.“

—  James Jones American author 1921 - 1977
Context: I still think its probably the most evil of all pursuits.... the thing is when you're getting shot at you don't think so much about who's right and who's wrong or who's good and who's and bad... one of the first things they told you was "Forget about patriotism.
