Jules Renard
From his journal
Translated by Louise Bogan and Elizabeth Roget

At the bottom of all patriotism is war: that is why I am no patriot.

You may be full of horror for war: Victor Hugo and Rostand almost succeed making you accept the butcheries of Napoleon.

The Minister of War has resigned; war has been suppressed.
