It must be a peace without victory... Victory would mean peace forced
upon the losers, a victor?s terms imposed upon the vanquished. It
would be accepted in humiliation, under duress, at an intolerable sacrifice,
and would leave a sting, a resentment, a bitter memory upon which the
terms of peace would rest, not permanently, but only as upon quicksand.

(Address to the U.S. Senate, January 22, 1917).
