Some quotes[edit]

"Men are not wise when they hear the call of nationalism"

- A. J. P. Taylor, Origins of the Second World War

"In retrospect, though many were guilty, none was innocent. The purpose of political activity is to provide peace and prosperity; and in this every statesman failed, for whatever reason. This is a story without heroes ..."

- Ibid.

"He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That puts it not unto the touch, To win or lose it all."

- James Graham, Marquis of Montrose

"Why this is hell, nor am I out of it. Think'st thou that I, who saw the face of God, And tasted the eternal joys of heaven, Am not tormented with ten thousand hells In being deprived of everlasting bliss?"

-'Mephistopheles' in The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe

"A desire to resist oppression is implanted in the nature of man."

-Gaius Tacitus

"The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life."

John F. Kennedy

Long Term Project[edit]

To get all dreadnought battleships of the Royal Navy up to at least GA standard, as this project encompasses 55 articles it will take me a while to complete.

To do list[edit]

My aim is to get all of these articles up to at least GA, by August 2012. Operation Majestic Titan Phase 1
