Friends (From the Enlightenment Period)

  • William Cavendish
  • John Locke

Friends (from the 21st century)

  • Barack Obama

I Chose these two because Barack Obama is a Leader who is smart like Thomas Hobbes, and I chose George Lopez because Thomas Hobbes needs a cool friend

"The condition of man... is a condition of war of everyone against everyone."

Personally we think this quote means, being that all men aren't loyal you shouldn't trust them because they might betray you thus every man for themselves.
