Paul Bäumer's Paradise

-"We have to take our situation as lightly as we can. That's why we seize every opportunity, and why terror finishes up cheek by jowl, 
with tomfoolery, in stark juxtaposition and without any midway stage. We can't help it, we just throw ourselves into it. Here to we work like mad to create a paradise, a paradise, needless to say, of guzzling and sleeping".

All Quiet on the western frontErich Maria Remarque, 1929.
