„So what are we saying?
Our Eden's a failure.
A made-up story to fit the picture-perfect world.
The one with "I do"s and "I love you."
And "we are made for each other."“

—  Sarah McLachlan Canadian musician, singer, and songwriter 1968

Interview by James Cameron, in Picture Post (28 October 1950)
Kontext: Wars are fought to gain a certain objective. War itself is not the objective; victory is not the objective; you fight to remove the obstruction that comes in the way of your objective. If you let victory become the end in itself then you've gone astray and forgotten what you were originally fighting about.

„With all the confidence I have
It seems I could go forever
But forever has no rest-stops
And my endurance sometimes fails Hold me, hold me, hold me in your arms
Can you tell me how I'm gonna make it“

„We must uncenter our minds from ourselves;
We must unhumanize our views a little, and become confident
As the rock and ocean that we were made from.“

—  Robinson Jeffers American poet 1887 - 1962

"Carmel Point"
Kontext: Now the spoiler has come: does it care?
Not faintly. It has all time. It knows the people are a tide
That swells and in time will ebb, and all
Their works dissolve. Meanwhile the image of the pristine beauty
Lives in the very grain of the granite,
Safe as the endless ocean that climbs our cliff. — As for us:
We must uncenter our minds from ourselves;
We must unhumanize our views a little, and become confident
As the rock and ocean that we were made from.
