A word for cave-men

... to make a man comfortable is to make him the opposite of sociable.
Sociability, like all good things, is full of discomforts, dangers, and renunciations. 

[p 137,  On Certain Modern Writers and the Institution of the Family, in Heretics, The Collected Works of G.K. Chesterton: 1]
