As they say, ‘If you would seek war, prepare for war.’”
“I believe, my lord, the saying is ‘If you would seek peace, prepare for war,’” Leonard ventured.
Vetinari put his head on one side and his lips moved as he repeated the phrase to himself. Finally he said, “No, no. I just don’t see that one at all. —Terry Pratchett

Vetinari: You know, it has often crossed my mind that those men deserve a proper memorial of some sort.
Vimes: Oh yes? In one of the main squares, perhaps?
Vetinari: Yes, that would be a good idea.
Vimes: Perhaps a tableau in bronze? All seven of them raising the flag, perhaps?
Vetinari: Bronze, yes.
Vimes: Really? And some sort of inspiring slogan?
Vetinari: Yes, indeed. Something like, perhaps, 'They Did The Job They Had To Do'?
Vimes: No. How dare you? How dare you! At this time! In this place! They did the job they didn't have to do, and they died doing it, and you can't give them anything. Do you understand? They fought for those who'd been abandoned, they fought for one another, and they were betrayed. Men like them always are. What good would a statue be? It'd just inspire new fools to believe they're going to be heroes. They wouldn't want that. Just let them be. For ever.
‘They are tragic,’ said Vetinari, ‘and we laugh at their tragedy as we laugh at our own. The painted grin leers out at us from the darkness, mocking our insane belief in order, logic, status, the reality of reality. The mask knows that we are born on the banana skin that leads only to the open manhole cover of doom, and all we can hope for are the cheers of the crowd.’ —Terry Pratchett
