"Force is always, and everywhere, a sign of fear--that is, a sign of weakness. Behind the vast armies and navies which we call the great powers of the world, there is fear. Fear it is that drives us out to war. Fear is the father of ferocity, and the forger of the sword. From the Creative point of view, which is God's point of view, force is weakness, and only Love is power."

-- G. A. Studdert Kennedy (1883-1929),
