    Lovers who love truly do not write down their happiness.
    Anatole France (1844–1924)

    The bugle-call to arms again sounded in my war-trained ear, the bayonets gleamed, the sabres clashed, and the Prussian helmets and the eagles of France stood face to face on the borders of the Rhine....

    Clara Barton (1821–1912)
