i) " Our faces are encrusted, our thoughts are devatstated, we are weary to death; when the attack comes we shall have to strike many of the men with our fists to waken them and make them come with us-- our eyes are burnt, our hands are torn, our knees bleed, our elbows are raw."

ii) "We see time pass in the colourless faces of the dying, we cram food into us, we run, we throw, we shoot, wel kill, we lie about, we are feeble and spent, and nothing supports us but the knowledge that there are still feebler, still more spent, still more helpless ones there who, with staring eyes, look upon us as gods that escape death many times."
