"Rome endured as long as there were Romans. America will endure as long as we remain American in spirit and in thought."
-David Starr Jordan (1851-1931)
And from the wiki on David Starr Jordan:
In addition to his work as Stanford president, Jordan was known for being a peace activist. He argued that war was detrimental to the human species because it removed the strongest organisms from the gene pool. Jordan was president of the World Peace Foundation from 1910 to 1914 and president of the World Peace Conference in 1915, and opposed U.S. involvement in World War I.
