With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and and lasting peace among ourselves, and with all nations.Abraham Lincoln

"Maria" There is someone I should love. At times I sustain deep, deep wounds. But, by the person I should love, they are all healed. "Maria" Everyone is crying. "Maria" But I want to believe.

No loss there of life human, but benches and chairs Had legs broken; such wounds, too, the long table bears, Stripped of cloths and of covers, fell on the plates dying, Wet with wine, as a knight on bloody bucklers lying, Among numerous chickens and turkeys stripped nude, From whose breasts, transfixed lately, forks stiffly protrude.
Whom conscience, ne'er asleep, wounds with incessant strokes, not loud, but deep.Michel de Montaigne
