... and support you. You must feed and support it. Carry fresh, warm, invigorating blood in your veins to inject into the veins of the world. This is far safer and nobler than sticking the lance into the swollen veins of the world, to draw forth its putrid blood for your own use. I not only exhort you but I warn you.

Nevertheless, this woman and her following ...

The writer of them never for a moment tries or pretends to take any pleasure in war.
