Not only does a good army commander not need any special qualities, on the contrary he needs the absence of the highest and best human attributes--love, poetry, tenderness, and philosophic inquiring doubt.

Something as simple as calling her sweetheart or pointing out her many attributes could put her in a romantic mood.
All conceptions which do not possess these two attributes - of being vivid in themselves and discriminated from all others - cannot be true.
In truth therefore these attributes do not belong to body at all; and if we go on in the same way testing the received qualities of matter, we shall find that in the last resort we understand nothing by it but extension, with the secondary and derivative characters of divisibility and mobility.
