It's often incorrectly attributed to Thucydides, but it's actually from a 19th century British Army officer named Sir William Butler: "The nation that will insist on drawing a broad line of demarcation between the fighting man and the thinking man is liable to find its fighting done by fools and its thinking done by cowards."
