Mother Teresa is one of my favorite persons, an icon. In a way, her actions speak louder than words.
So, I'm a glutton; and have another that, after I heard or read it, never forgot: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." Churchill went on to say, in a universal way, comparing WW II to WW I: "In the last war millions of men fought by hurling masses of steel at one another. Prodigious slaughter was the consequence. In this war nothing of this kind has yet appeared. It is a conflict of strategy, organisation, technical apparatus, science, mechanics, and morale." It reminds one of the few casualties suffered by U.S. (U.N.) forces in overthrowing Saddam, in the face of predictions by naysayers of numerous casualties and body bags; also, another conveniently forgotten fact at this point in the Bush presidency.
