Yet, more often war ended for good only when one side capitulated and found itself no longer able or willing to wage war on the premises that had first led it to conflict. Marathon (490) saw the defeat of a Persian army, but neither its destruction nor the humiliation of the invadersand so within a decade the Persians were back in Attica. However, in 480 B.C. Xerxes' armada was nearly ruined at Salamis and his remaining land forces essentially wiped out at Plataea the next yearensuring that no Persian army would again invade Greece. The so-called first Peloponnesian War ended in stalemate and truce and was followed a decade and a half later by the invasion of Attica in 431 B.C. The Peace of Nicias of 421 B.C. stopped for a time, but did not end, the killing. Such a resolution was only accomplished with the utter defeat of Athens in 404 and the end of its imperial system. Sparta ceased invading its neighbors to the north only when Epaminondas freed the Messenian helots, encouraged the construction of fortified cities in the Peloponnese such as Messene, Megalopolis, and Mantinea, and so made Sparta's adventuresome strategy too risky. In contrast, Philip stopped his aggrandizement only after Chaeronea; and in the turmoil following his death Alexander put down renewed war by the destruction of Thebes and the crushing of Greek resistance.

The present data supported the anecdotal observations that fear of punishment was higher for fundamentalist protestants than for liberal protestants. These results are evidence for the validity of the religious fear scale and also suggest that religious fear may be useful in distinguishing between religious fundamentalists and religious liberals. On the other hand, religious guilt was the same for fundamentalist and liberal protestants, and was suggestively lower for those reporting a personal faith not associated with a religious organization. Further research may find that religious guilt is an important factor distinguishing those who consider themselves spiritual but not religious (Zinnabauer et al, 1997).
There may be times when you need to quote long passages. However, you should use block quotations only when you fear that omitting any words will destroy the integrity of the passage. If that passage exceeds four lines (some sources say five), then set it off as a block quotation.
life is not a paragraph and death i think is no parenthesis
Father, thy word is past, man shall find grace;
And shall grace not find means, that finds her way,
The speediest of thy winged messengers,
To visit all thy creatures, and to all
Comes , , unsought,
for man, so coming; he her
Can never seek, once dead in sins and lost;
for himself or offering meet,
Indebted and , hath none to bring:
then, for him, life for life
I offer, on let thine anger fall;
Account man; I for his sake will leave
Thy bosom, and this next to thee
Freely put off, and for him lastly
Well , on me let Death wreck all his rage;
Under his power I shall not long
Lie ; thou hast me to possess
Life in my self for ever, ,
Though now to I yield, and am his due
All that of me can die, yet that debt paid,
Thou wilt not leave me in the grave
His prey, nor suffer my unspotted
For ever with corruption there to dwell;
But I shall rise Victorious, and subdue
My Vanquisher, of his ;
Death his wound shall then receive, and stoop
Inglorious, of his .
I through the ample Air in Triumph high
Shall lead Hell Captive Hell, and show
The powers of darkness bound. Thou at the sight
, out of Heaven shalt look down and smile,
While by thee I ruin all my Foes,
, and with his Carcass glut the Grave:
Then with the multitude of my
Shall enter Heaven long absent, and ,
Father, to see thy face, wherein no cloud
Of anger shall remain, but peace ,
And reconcilement; shall be no more
Thenceforth, but in thy presence Joy entire.

Perhaps most depressing to consider is the occasional utility of ancient warfare. Sparta entered a 50-year rivalry with Athens following the Persian withdrawal after 479. And it ended its dispute not with reconciliation or mediation but with the utter collapse of the Athenian empire. It is unlikely that Xerxes would have withdrawn from Greece had he not lost so many of his ships at Salamis and most of his army at Plataea. Nor would Sparta have voluntarily vacated Boeotia had its army not been crushed at Leuctra and many of its helots freed the next spring in Messenia. Warif one were an Athenian in 480, a Spartan in 431, or a helot in 369possessed a certain utility, either in guaranteeing freedom, ending fear, or providing liberation.
