Now in war we are confronted with conditions which are strangeIf we accept them we will never win.Since being realistic, as in mundane combats fisticWe will get a bloody nose and that's a sin.
Female animals defending their young are notoriously ferocious and lack the playful delight in combat which characterizes the mock combats of males of the same species. There seems very little ground for claiming that the mother of young children is more peaceful, more responsible, and more thoughtful for the welfare of the human race than is her husband or brother.Margaret Mead
"Just as, in our days, exposure of children, combats of gladiators, torture of prisioners, and other atrocities are held to be scandalous and shameful, while in earlier times they were thought quite justifiable and right, so in the future will be the murder of animals, to feed upon their corpses, be pronounced to be immoral and indefensible."
What delight will it afford to renew the sweet counsel we have taken together, to recount the toils, the combats, and the labor of the way, and to approach, not the house, but the throne of God, in company, in order to join in the symphonies of heavenly voices, and lose ourselves amidst the splendors and fruitions of the beatific vision.robert hall
