A quotation (Louis Pasteur)

“Two contrary laws seem to be wrestling with each other nowadays: the one, a law of blood and death, ever imagining new means of destruction and forcing nations to be constantly ready for the battlefield; the other a law of peace, work and health, ever evolving new means of delivering man from the scourges which beset him.”

“The one seeks violent conquests, the other the relief of humanity. The latter places one human life above any victory ; while the former would sacrifice hundreds and thousands of lives.”

Louis Pasteur. In 1888.
