"14. Muddy Road Tanzan and Ekido were once traveling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was still falling.

Ekido did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he could no longer restrain himself.

Quotes About Appropriate Life

"But you were only an idea to me before, an abstraction that lived in my mind and called forth its appropriate response. It was that abstraction I stabbed. But now, for the first time, I see you are a man like me. I thought of your hand-grenades, of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our fellowship. Forgive me, comrade. We always see it too late. Why do they never tell us that you are poor devils like us, that your mothers are just as anxious as ours, and that we have the same fear of death, and the same dying and the same agony - Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy? If we threw away these rifles and this uniform you could be my brother just like Kat and Albert. Take twenty years of my life, comrade, and stand up - take more, for I do not know what I can even attempt to do with it now." - Author: Erich Maria Remarque

They want it to be easy and its just not going to be." - Author: Ben Fountain
