Erich Maria Remarque Quote: We're no longer young men. We've lost any desire to conquer the world. We are refugees. We are fleeing from ourselves. From our lives. We were eighteen years old, and we had just begun to love the world and to love being in it; but we had to shoot at it. The first shell to land went straight for our hearts. We've been cut off from real action, from getting on, from progress. We don't believe in those things any more; we believe in the war.

Erich Maria Remarque Sayings: How senseless is everything that can ever be written, done, or thought, when such things are possible.

A hospital alone shows what war is.
