Our form of government, inestimable as it is, exposes us, more than any other, to the insidious intrigues and pestilent influence of foreign nations. Nothing but our inflexible neutrality can preserve us.
Neutrality is at times a graver sin than belligerence.
Neutral men are devil’s allies.
Neutrality is no favorite with Providence, for we are so formed that it is scarcely possible for us to stand neuter in our hearts, although we may deem it prudent to appear so in our actions.
The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crises maintain their neutrality.
People who demand neutrality in any situation are usually not neutral but in favor of the status quo.
The Nazi two-valued evaluation of “neutrality” was: either be “really neutral” and endorse and fight for the Nazis, or be “not really neutral” and not help them. According to this orientation a “really neutral” Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Norway, etc., should fight against England, France, etc., to prove that they are “really neutral”!
Neutrality, as a lasting principle, is an evidence of weakness.
There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan.
A wise neuter joins with neither, but uses both as his honest interest leads him.
