"When the sword is once drawn , the passions of men observe no bounds of moderation" what is the meaning of this thought for the day.

When you are ready to fight and ready to attack, you will not be sympathetic or moderate.

Once a fight has started, once war has broken, men will behave savagely, with great violence and without "reason".

It was also summed up by William Tecumseh Sherman who said "...War is all hell and you can not refine it." War is not clean and once fighting begins anything can happen even non combatants can get hurt or killed.

Once you start (i.e., take or land the first punch, launch the 1st missile, or participate in any aggression), it's hard to stop as reasoning tends to go out the window. "Cooler heads will prevail" would be an antithetical quote.

Or, it means you'd better kill or be killed.
