Ancient Wisdom

"Si vis Pacem, para Bellum"

    - Vegetius

"It is most meet we arm us 'gainst the foe;
For peace itself should not so dull a kingdom,
Though war nor no known quarrel were in question,
But that defences, musters, preparations,
Should be maintain'd, assembled and collected,
As were a war in expectation."

      - William Shakespeare, Henry V, Act 2 Scene IV
