On War and Peace

How do I know I am not from one of these other lands?
Not one of these other Peoples?
From another time?
How do I know where I shall be from next?
And if so: How can I bear ill will on any people anywhere?
How can I bear arms against another?
And yet, how can I not defend myself and my family
From all those who would cause us harm?
What then is the purpose of war?
And the intent of peace?

– From The Book of Dreams
