Famous quotes containing the word warlike:

    When they are not at war they do a little hunting, but spend most of their time in idleness, sleeping and eating. The strongest and most warlike do nothing. They vegetate, while the care of hearth and home and fields is left to the women, the old and the weak. Strange inconsistency of temperament, which makes the same men lovers of sloth and haters of tranquility.
    Tacitus (c. 55–c. 120)

    Under peaceful conditions, the warlike man attacks himself.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
