Wisdom From the Street

 I was walking into work today and came around a corner to find a homeless person standing on the curb. I shifted my direction to maintain a safe distance and the guy turned and spoke.

    "Hey, ya' know what my father always used to say to me? He'd say, "If you want peace, prepare for war."

I nodded and kept moving.

 

Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum

--Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
