Quotes by Captain Price on War
#1. “I was just a ‘Leftenant’ back then, doing some wet work. Chernobyl, Christmas for the bad guys. Even a decade later a lot of them still used it to get their hands-on nuclear material. A lot of them, including one Imran Zakhaev. Of course, we couldn’t just let that happen, cash for spent fuel rods? That’s one hell of a recipe for destruction. It was the first time our government authorized an assassination order since the second World War. I was under the command of Captain MacMillan.” — Captain Price.
#2. “Makarov, you ever hear the old saying, ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’?” — Captain Price.
#3. “The healthy human mind doesn’t wake up in the morning thinking this is its last day on Earth. But I think that’s a luxury, not a curse. To know you’re close to the end is a kind of freedom. Good time to take inventory. Out-gunned. Outnumbered. Out of our minds. On a suicide mission. But the sand and the rocks here, stained with thousands of years of warfare. They will remember us. For this. Because out of all our vast array of nightmares, this is the one we choose for ourselves. We go forward like a breath exhaled from the Earth. With vigor in our hearts and one goal in sight: We. Will. Kill him.” — Captain Price.

#9. “Makarov, this is Price. Shepherd’s a war hero now. He’s got your operations playbook and he’s got a blank check. Give me what you’ve got on Shepherd, and I’ll take care of the rest.” — Captain Price.
#10. “This is for the record. History is written by the victor. History is filled with liars. If he lives, and we die, his truth becomes written – and ours is lost. Shepherd will be a hero, ’cause all you need to change the world is one good lie and a river of blood. He’s about to complete the greatest trick a liar ever played on history. His truth will be the truth. But only if he lives, and we die.” — Captain Price.
#11. “Your world as you knew it is gone. How far would you go to bring it back? Shepherd created a war, but only we knew the truth.” — Captain Price.
#12. “They say truth is the first casualty of war. But who defines what’s true? Truth is just a matter of perspective. The duty of every soldier is to protect the innocent, and sometimes that means preserving the lie of good and evil—that war isn’t just natural selection played out on a grand scale. The only truth I found is that the world we live in is a giant tinderbox. All it takes is someone to light the match.” — Captain Price.
