We will remain Fighters

"Here is what we cannot deny, had we wanted to: combat, the father of all things, is  ours also; It is him who has hammered us, chiselled us and tempered us to make us what we are. And forever, as long as the wheel of life shall dance in us its mighty ronde, this war will be the axle around which she roars. She trained us for the fight, and for as long as we live, we will remain fighters."
Ernst Junger, The War as Inner Experience, 1922
