War (Part II)

De Waal Venter - 2008-08-14

I think this quote is highly relevant to my previous letter on the subject of war:

It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace. - André Gide, author, Nobel laureate (1869–1951)
