Death is the lot of cities and of States;
Pomp, luxury, 'neath sand and grass do lie,
Yet man, it seems, is wroth that he must die.
We die, yet should not envy those that live;
We die, yet should we not die unavenged.
Quote of the day
Wars can be prevented just as surely as they can be provoked, and we who fail to prevent them must share the guilt for the dead.
