„If you let victory become the end in itself then you've gone astray and forgotten what you were originally fighting about.“

Interview by James Cameron, in Picture Post (28 October 1950)
Contexto: Wars are fought to gain a certain objective. War itself is not the objective; victory is not the objective; you fight to remove the obstruction that comes in the way of your objective. If you let victory become the end in itself then you've gone astray and forgotten what you were originally fighting about.
