  2. "And as the desert offers no tangible riches, as there is nothing to see or hear in the desert, one is compelled to acknowledge, since the inner life, far from falling asleep, is fortified, that man is first animated by invisible solicitations. Man is ruled by Spirit. In the desert I am worth what my divinities are worth."

    Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Letter to a Hostage

  15. "Desire and
    All the sweet pulsing aches
    And gentle hurtings
    That were you,
    Are gone into the sullen dark.
    Now in the night you come unsmiling
    To lie with me
    A dull, cold, rigid bayonet
    On my hot-swollen, throbbing soul. “

    Ernest Hemingway,  Killed Paive July - 8 - 1918  (Before America entered the war Hemingway volunteered and served in the ambulance corps in France; he was transferred to the Paive region of Italy in July, 1918, and shortly after on July 8 was wounded in a mortar attack. This poem apparently looks back to that day.)


    “War happens to people, one by one. That is really all I have to say and it seems to me I have been saying it forever. Unless they are immediate victims, the majority of mankind behaves as if war was an act of God which could not be prevented; or they behave as if war elsewhere was none of their business. It would be a bitter cosmic joke if we destroy ourselves due to atrophy of the imagination.”

    Martha Gellhorn
