... if peace be a blessing, and a chiefe of his blessings, we may deduce what Warre is. To make no otherwise of it then it is the rodde of GOD’s wrath (as Esay termeth it), his yron flaile (as Amos), the hammer of the earth (as Jeremie) whereby he dasheth two nations together. One of them must in peeces; both the worse for it. Warre is no matter of sport.
- Lancelot Andrewes
