Hablando del estado de Guerra dice Hobbes en su obra magna:
In such condition there is no place for industry, because the fruit thereof is uncertain, and consequently no culture of the earth, no navigation nor use of the commodities that may be imported by sea, no commodious building, no instruments of moving and removing such things as require much force, no knowledge of the face of the earth; no account of time, no arts, no letters, no society, and, which is worst of all, continual fear and danger of violent death, and the life of man solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.
Hobbes, Leviatán, cap. XIII
Y la vida del hombre es solitaria, pobre, desagradable, brutal y corta.
