All men seek happiness. This is without
exception. Whatever different means they employ,
they all tend to this end. The cause of some
going to war and of others avoiding it, is the
same desire in both, attending with different
views. The will never takes the least step but to
this objective. This is the motive of every man,
even of those who hang themselves. Blaise
Pascal
