FLATTERY

Neither at any time were they found using words of flattery – 1 Thessalonians 2:5 (R.V.)

Flatterers are the worst of tame beasts. – Thomas Fuller

Let a flatterer be in your Paternoster*, but not in your Creed; pray for him but trust him no more than a thief.

WAR

The grievousness of war – Isaiah 21:15

Changes and warfare are with me – Job 10:17 (R.V.)

Beat your plowshares into swords – Joel 3:10

War is the slaughter-house of mankind and the hell of this present world. – John Trapp

War is pleasant to those who never tried it. – John Clavin
