The Americanization of Emily

"I want to know what I am, not what I should be."
"It's not war that's insane, you see. It's the morality of it. It's not greed or ambition that makes war: it's goodness. Wars are always fought for the best of reasons - for liberation or manifest destiny. Always against tyranny and always in the interest of humanity. So far this war, we've managed to butcher some ten million humans in the interest of humanity. Next war it seems we'll have to destroy all of man in order to preserve his damn dignity. It's not war that's unnatural to us, it's virtue. As long as valor remains a virtue, we shall have soldiers. So, I preach cowardice. Through cowardice, we shall all be saved.”
“I don't want to know what's good, or bad, or true.  I let God worry about the truth.  I just want to know the momentary fact about things.  Life isn't good, or bad, or true.  It's merely factual, it's sensual, it's alive.  My idea of living sensual facts are you, a home, a country, a world, a universe, in that order.”
