We are human beings.
When fear comes, sleep seldom can.
Not everyone can do everything.
The sailor talks about the wind; the farmer, about cattle;
the soldier about wounds.
As long as I breathe, I hope.
Life is vigilance.
There is no life in war.
Man is a wolf to man
In gardens of Bellona are born the  seeds of death
The outcomes of battles are always uncertain.
He who can prevail over himself in victory is twice victorious.
You know how to win, Hannibal, but not how
to take advantage of victory!
The only salvation for the conquered: not to expect salvation.
Being conquered; we conquered.
Who was he, who first tok up the fearsome swords?

Fra «Another day of live» av Ryszard Kapuściński.
