    And they were men.
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    Within him, as he hurled himself forward, was born a love, a despairing fondness for this flag which was near him.
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    New eyes were given to him. And the most startling thing was to learn suddenly that he was very insignificant
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    He had slept and, awakening, found himself a knight
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    They were worn, exhausted, having slept but little and labored much
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    They were weak mortals. As for himself, he had fled with discretion and dignity.
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    As he who had so befriended him was thus passing out of his life, it suddenly occurred to the youth that he had not once seen his face.
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    that he was despicable, he could not exist without making it, through his actions, apparent to all men
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    He wished that he, too, had a wound, a red badge of courage.
    Dan Zúñigahas quoted7 months ago
    It seemed that Nature could not be quite ready to kill him
