Gentlemen, an old soldier salutes you and bids you farewell. ~ The Adventures of Gerard by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle In victory one does not understand the horror of war. It is only in the cold chill of defeat that it is brought home to you. ~ The Adventures of Gerard by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Of all the great battles in which I had the honour of drawing my sword for the Emperor and for France there was not one which was lost. At Waterloo, although, in a sense, I was present, I was unable to fight, and the enemy was victorious. It is not for me to say that there is a connection between these two things.

" ~ The Land of Mist by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle People who are in earnest are always interesting, whether you agree with them or not. ~ The Land of Mist by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "There seems to me to be absolutely no limit to the inanity and credulity of the human race. Homo Sapiens! Homo idioticus!" ~ The Land of Mist by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
