“There are persons who makea war out of everything, real banditti of intercourse. All that they undertake must end in victory; they do not know how to get on in peace. Such men…make…enemies out of those whom they ought to regard as children. They try to effect everything with strategy and treat it as the fruit of their skill. But when others have recognised their perverse humour all revolt against them and learn to overturn their chimerical plans, and they succeed in nothing but only heap up a mass of troubles, since everything serves to increase their disappointment.” Gracian #218
