Siegfried Sassoon
“His wet white face and miserable eyes
Brought nurses to him more than groans and sighs:
But hoarse and low and rapid rose and fell
His troubled voice: he did the business well.

(First verse of Died of Wounds)”

Juliet Nicolson, The Great Silence 1918-1920: Living in the Shadow of the Great War

William Shakespeare
“Wear me as a seal over your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, passion cruel as the grave.”
William Shakespeare, Henry V

“Any property taken away from others, whether by stealth, fraud or violence, must be wrong: but to take away men themselves, and keep them in slavery, must be worse.”
