Edwin Vaughan, a British Officer, as told in John Keegan’s, "The First World War"

World War 1, Quote #2 "The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundation of political liberty. We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind."

--President Woodrow Wilson

The 100th Anniversary of the Armistice that Ended World War 1, post #1 We are approaching the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War 1, a war that dismantled four empires and gave birth to new nations. The Great War ended almost five decades of peace in Europe, and put us on the path to the rise of Adolf Hitler and many of today’s challenges in the Middle East. I will be sharing some of my favorite quotes and snippets of interesting information from that time over the next several months.

Today I start with an excerpt from General John “Black Jack” Pershing, Commander of American Expeditionary Forces letter dated November 9, 1917 (source:  My Fellow Soldiers” by Andrew Carroll): 

"I am glad you realize, and I hope all Americans will realize the vastness of our undertaking and the necessity for very loyal support whatever may happen. We are fighting for a cause that made us great as a nation, and we must all stand together."

Hemingway Quote While reading about Ernest Hemingway's coverage of war, I found this quote from "Papa": 

"The writer's standard of fidelity to the truth should be so high that his invention, out of his experience, should produce a truer account than anything factual can be.  For facts can be observed badly; but when a good writer is creating something, he has time and scope to make of it an absolute truth."  (source:  Hemingway on War and Its Aftermath, National Archives)

Travel Quote "It is better to travel 1,000 miles than to read a thousand books." I heard this quote on a recent Rick Steves podcast. I don't know who originally said it, but it has stuck with me.

Travel Quote I am just back from a life-changing safari in southern Africa.  Coincidental to the trip, I have been reading Paul Theroux's "Deep South."  I have read many of his books, and in the last pages of "Deep South" he writes: 

"Travel has always been a way of defeating this sinking feeling, partly because travel is a form of escape, and travel itself--the elemental farewell--becomes the fugitive fantasy of a new life, travel inspiring a sense of hope.  I began my real life, my life of intensity and solitude and discovery, as a twenty-two year-old traveler in Africa, then elsewhere, everywhere, and that formed me as a writer, alert to every sound and smell and to the pulses of the air."

Quote/Challenge I was listening to a Rick Steves travel podcast (link:  Rick Steves) from 2016 recently, and his guest mentioned a quote that not only challenges travelers, but photographers as well:  

What you see is what you believed before you looked.
