In looking for an interesting quote to provide a healthy dose of skepticism I came across this:

Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out…and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel ... and in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for "the universal brotherhood of man" — with his mouth.

~Mark Twain

Mankind is the only species that eats when it is not hungry, sleeps when it is not tired, and kills when it doesn't have to.

that kills me.

Interesting!!! That makes me love him even more.. it's intriguing that he used that term twice.. Hmm.. I wonder which one he said first?

Apparently the one you cited is from Following the Equator (1897), and the one I cited is from What is Man? (1906).
