Quickly translated from Spanish translations, so don't trust me on the literality...
  • Intentionally or not, judges are always mistaken for justice, and priests for God. Thus men get used to neither trust justice nor God (Jean Baptiste Alphonse Carr)
  • One thinks he dies for a country, and he dies for the industrials (Anatole France)
  • Lend money to your enemy, and you'll win him; lend money to your friend and you'll lose it(Benjamin Franklin)
  • War is nefarious, because he makes more evil men than it kills (Immanuel Kant)
  • A saver is an idiot who immobilizes a thousand francs to win five, and isn't aware of the many beautiful things one can do with a thousand francs (Paul Bernard)

Franklin:
Poor Richard's 1740 Almanack
Lend Money to an Enemy, and thou'lt gain him, to a Friend and thou'lt lose him.
