War is an ugly thing, but

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

~John Stuart Mill

Great quote

Thanks for posting this, Sam. The quote from John Stuart Mill is as true today as it ever was.
A man who won't lay down his life for his family, his friends or his country is no part of a man.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).
