"If the mind is to emerge unscathed from this relentless struggle with the unforeseen, two qualities are indispensable: first, an intellect that, even in the darkest hour, retains some glimmerings of the inner light which leads to truth; and second, the courage to follow this faint light wherever it may lead."
~ Carl von Clausewitz.

The Loss of Innocence
"I sit, this evening, far away,
From all I used to know,
And nought reminds my soul to-day
Of happy long ago."
