Burning of the Reichstag, Germany, 1933

The Reichstag fire was an arson attack on the home of the German parliament in Berlin just one month after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany.

“You ask me what it feels like to have wings. I can only tell you the feeling with words. And words have neither feelings nor wings. Words are leaky vessels into which a cargo of meaning and emotion are placed, and when they leave you and reach the farther shore of another mind a considerable portion of that cargo has been lost at sea. Fallen overboard, gone to rot, consumed by vermin, decayed to a state unlike its original form.”
Steven R. Boyett, Mortality Bridge

Watching her he played the music of her sleeping. And by surrendering made something beautiful.”
Steven R. Boyett, Mortality Bridge
