“And he needed to be able to look at himself in the mirror without having to turn away - he couldn't bear to be less than he hoped he was. It was a virtue and a fault that he would carry with him all his life.”
Simon Tolkien, No Man's Land

“...his endearment fell on deaf ears like a stone dropping into an empty well.”
Simon Tolkien, No Man's Land

“You can't win because of the guns," said Adam with a sigh. "Machine guns, mortars, field guns, howitzers: it doesn't matter how much courage soldiers have, how much will; flesh and blood can't pass through bullets and shells, or at least not in sufficient numbers to have any effect. The guns win in the end and they always will. Not us, not the Germans - the guns.”
Simon Tolkien, No Man's Land
