I believe that we should show temperance in everything.
For nearly anything becomes bad if taken too far.
And then, of course, there is the less obvious: Because even bathing, sleeping, and solitude have their limits.
Violence can even be permissible if done in the right context, which is the defense of that which is right. But taken further turns a good act into an evil one.
Violence was something he liked too much. Violence is something you can’t fear, but you can’t love it, either. One vice is as bad as the other. Excess is the beginning of the end of any ambitious youngster.
