Now Playing Tracks

I’m finally back at school and I’m way too busy to be blogging regularly. I’m working constantly, classes start tomorrow, and during my free time I’m either with my girlfriend, teaching myself economics, or reading. So you might not here much from me for a bit.

A man cannot realize that above such shattered bodies there are still human faces in which life goes its daily round. And this is only one hospital, one single station; there are hundreds of thousands in Germany, hundreds of thousands in France, hundreds of thousands in Russia. How senseless is everything that can ever be written, done, or thought, when such things are possible. It must be all lies and of no account when the culture of a thousand years could not prevent this stream of blood being poured out, these torture-chambers in their hundreds of thousands. A hospital alone shows what war is.
Paul Bӓumer in All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque (1929)
