  3. Douglas MacArthur:

    The Long Gray Line has never failed us, were you to do so, a million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words :' Duty, honor, country.'.

  4. Martin Garside:

    It is incredibly sad - I was literally two feet from this dead whale, it was both poignant and a bit eerie really - road traffic was thundering overhead on the busiest motorway in Britain and oblivious to all the people in the cars and lorries there was a 10-metre long beautiful whale floating dead beneath them.

  5. Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna of Russia:

    If we look deep into the life of every human, we discover that it is full of miracles. You will say, Of terror and death, as well. Yes, that also. But we do not clearly see why the blood of these victims must flow. There, in the heavens, they understand everything and, no doubt, have found calm and the Truer Homeland -- a heavenly Homeland. We on this earth must look to that Heavenly Homeland with understanding and say with resignation, Thy will be done. Completely destroyed now is the Great Russia without fear or reproach, but Holy Russia, the Orthodox Church, the Church against which the gates of hell shall not prevail, exists and exists as never before; and those who believe, who have no doubts, have an inner sun that illuminates the darkness of the thundering storm.
