FOR THE FALLEN Remembrance Day

For the Fallen

Penned by Laurence Binyon, this is probably the most famous war poem in English.

Also known as the Ode of Remembrance, it was first published in the Times on September 21, 1914 – just two months after the First World War began on July 28.

Binyon was too old to enlist as a soldier in the Great War, but he volunteered in hospitals, helping wounded French soldiers.

He wrote For the Fallen in Cornwall shortly after the Battle of Marne:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.

Zitat des Tages

„Das Prinzip der Meinungsfreiheit beschäftigt sich nicht mit dem Inhalt der Rede eines Menschen und schützt nicht nur die Äußerung guter Ideen, sondern aller Ideen. Wenn es anders wäre, wer würde dann bestimmen, welche Ideen gut wären und welche verboten sind? Die Regierung?“ —
Ayn Rand (1978)

„The principle of free speech is not concerned with the content of a man’s speech and does not protect only the expression of good ideas, but all ideas. If it were otherwise, who would determine which ideas are good and which are forbidden? The government?—
Ayn Rand (1978)

„Als ich mich wirklich selbst zu lieben begann, konnte ich erkennen, dass emotionaler Schmerz und Leid nur Warnung für mich sind, gegen meine eigene Wahrheit zu leben. Heute weiß ich, das nennt man “Authentisch-Sein”.

Charlie Chaplin
