Siegfried Sassoon

And it is the consciousness of our own humanity which makes us forgive others and become tender and tolerant toward them. In this moment, before I fall asleep, I remember that I must die, and be as if I had not been. In the living darkness before death we cling together and are kind to one another. That’s the only creation we are capable of. — Siegfried Sassoon
