“What the horrors of war are, no one can imagine. They are not wounds and blood and fever, spotted and low, or dysentery, chronic and acute, cold and heat and famine. They are intoxication, drunken brutality, demoralisation and disorder on the part of the inferior ... jealousies, meanness, indifference, selfish brutality on the part of the superior.”
—Florence Nightingale (18201910)

And every day I, a curious boy, never too close, never disturbing
Cautiously peering, absorbing, translating.”
