Truth is within ourselve
There is an inmost center in us all,
Where truth abides in fulness...and to know,
Rather consists in opening out a way
Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape
Robert Browning (Paracelsus)

War is human,it is as something that is lived like a love or a hatred...It might better be described as a pathological condition because it admits of accidents which not even a skilled physician could have foreseen. Marcel Proust

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea,and music in its roar.
I love not man the less, but nature more.
George Gordon Byron
