“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” –Robert A. Heinlein

And she who is parting with her sweetheart today-

Let her forge her pain into strength.

By the children we swear, we swear by the graves,

That no one will force us to submit!

Poet Anna Akhmatova [The Wind Of War Part 1. Vow] written July 1941 in Leningrad
