QUOTE XXV

Thomas Carlyle (1795 – 1881 ) – “Battles, in these ages, are transacted by mechanism; with the slightest possible development of human individuality or spontaneity: men now die, and kill another, in an artificial manner. Battles ever since Homer’s time, when they were Fighting Mobs, have mostly ceased to be worth looking at, worth reading or remembering.”
