Quotes about: War
  • Let us not deceive ourselves; we must elect world peace or world destruction.

    Bernard Mannes Baruch (1946). “United States atomic energy proposals: Statement of the United States policy on control of atomic energy”
  • Although the shooting war is over, we are in the midst of a cold war which is getting warmer.

    Bernard Baruch's Speech before the Senate's Special Committee Investigating the National Defense Program, 1948.
  • Let us not be deceived we are today in the midst of a cold war.

    Address at the unveiling of his portrait in the South Carolina Legislature, Columbia, S.C., 16 Apr. 1947. The term cold war was popularized by Baruch's speech and by Walter Lippmann's 1947 book with that title. An earlier use was by George Orwell writing in the Tribune, 19 Oct. 1945 (see Orwell for this and still older antecedents). Baruch credited speechwriter Herbert Bayard Swope with supplying him with this phrase in 1946 (in a draft speech about United States - Soviet relations). See Orwell
