Erasmus
“Moreover God hath ordained man in this world, as it were, the very image of himself, to the intent, that he, as it were a god on earth, should provide for the wealth of all creatures.”

Alan Watts

Erasmus
“Nothing doth worse become a man (I will not say a Christian man) than war.”
Erasmus, Against War
