"Let me hold one of those," I said, almost mad at him. He gave it to me with a tiny pair of tweezers. I let it float in my palm a moment and then made him take it back.

Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind."

Up from the trenchesthey came out upon the pitted, raw earthwobbling as if new-born.They could not believe they would be allowed to live,the orders had come down: no more killing.They approached the enemy, holding out chocolateand cigarettes. They shook hands, exchangedsouvenirs--mess-kits, neckerchiefs.Some even embraced, while in Londontotal strangers copulatedin doorways and on the pavement, in the ecstasyof being reprieved. Nine months later,like men emerging from the trenches, first the head,then the body, there were lifted, newborn, from these mothers,the soldiers of World War Two."

It was caused, I thought, by people failing to love one another, failing to love their enemies."

Today's Quote

...a book provides for a distillation of our sporadic mind, a record of its most vital manifestations, a concentration of inspired moments that might originally have arisen across a multitude of years and been separated by extended stretches of bovine gazing. To meet an author whose books one has enjoyed must, in this view, necessarily be a disappointment... because such a meeting can only reveal a person as he exists within, and finds himself subject to, the limitations of time."
Author: Alain De Botton
