#3 “We’re here for a reason.”

Someone asked me, “What is the difference between a soldier and a warrior?” I responded that soldiers place winning above all else, whereas warriors place honor above winning. The question could have used different terms for the two archetypes. The term “soldier” honestly enjoys a certain amount of reverence in the modern vernacular, but the distinction was clear when the question was asked. And, this is how I should have answered:

Soldiers make war.
Warriors make peace.
