Hast thou named all the birds without a gun? 
Loved the wood-rose, and left it on its stalk? 
At rich men’s tables eaten bread and pulse? 
Unarmed, faced danger with a heart of trust? 
And loved so well a high behavior, 
In man or maid, that thou from speech refrained, 
Nobility more nobly to repay? 
O, be my friend, and teach me to be thine!-
Emerson

Extinguish Thou my eyes:I still can see Thee, deprive my ears of sound:I still can hear Thee, and without feet I still can come to Thee, and without voice I still can call to Thee. Sever my arms from me, I still will hold Thee with all my heart as with a single hand, arrest my heart, my brain will keep on beating, and Should Thy fire at last my brain consume, the flowing of my blood will carry Thee. - Rilke

"The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed,the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people,will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish…

Soldiers: don’t give yourselves to brutes,men who despise you and enslave you,who regiment your lives,tell you what to do,what to think and what to feel,who drill you,diet you,treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder.

Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men,machine men,with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate,only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don’t fight for slavery,fight for liberty.” - Charlie Chaplin
