    Happy the Man, who void of Cares and Strife,
    In Silken, or in Leathern Purse retains
    A Splendid Shilling: He nor hears with Pain
    New Oysters cry’d, nor sighs for chearful Ale;

    Cannons and fire-arms are cruel and damnable machines; I believe them to have been the direct suggestion of the Devil. If Adam had seen in a vision the horrible instruments his children were to invent, he would have died of grief.
    Martin Luther (1483–1546)
