[We Believed That It Was Most Desirable That The North Should Win, We Believed In The Principle That The Union Is Indissoluable, We, Or Many Of Us At Least, Also Believed That The Conflict Was Inevitable, And That Slavery Had Lasted Long Enough. But We Equally Believed That Those Who Stood Against Us Held Just As Sacred Conviction That Were The Opposite Of Ours, And We Respected Them As Every Men With A Heart Must Respect Those Who Give All For Their Belief.]

Quotes About Cameras And Love

"Words are the oldest information storage and retrieval system ever devised. Words are probably older than the cave paintings in France, words have been here for tens of thousands of years longer than film, moving pictures, video, and digital video, and words will likely be here after those media too. When the electromagnetic pulse comes in the wake of the nuclear blast? Those computers and digital video cameras and videotape recorders that are not melted outright will be plastic and metal husks used to prop open doors. Not so with the utterances of tongues. Words will remain, and the highly complicated and idiosyncratic accounts assembled from them will provide us with the dark news about the blast. The written word will remain, scribbled on collapsed highway overpasses, as a testament to love and rage, as evidence of the wanderers in the ruin." - Author: Rick Moody

Quotes About Troubled Friends

"I should have written you a letter, it was too late to make the deaths of my brothers an excuse. Since they died, I wrote a book; why not a letter? A mysterious but truthful answer is that while I can gear myself up to do a novel, letters, real-life communications, are too much for me. I used to rattle them off easily enough; why is the challenge of writing to friends and acquaintances too much for me now? Because I have become such a solitary, and not in the Aristotelian sense: not a beast, not a god. Rather, a loner troubled by longings, incapable of finding a suitable language and despairing at the impossibility of composing messages in a playable key--as if I no longer understood the codes used by the estimable people who wanted to hear from me and would have so much to reply if only the impediments were taken away." - Author: Saul Bellow
