I know. I was there. I saw the great void in your soul, and you saw mine.

Erich Maria Remarque
I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. I see how peoples are set against one another, and in silence, unknowingly, foolishly, obediently, innocently slay one another.
Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet on the Western Front
