„Here the old Bacchic piety endures,
Here the sweet legends of the world remain.“

—  Vita Sackville-West, Context: The dusk is heavy with the wine's warm load; Here the long sense of classic measure cures The spirit weary of its difficult pain; Here the old Bacchic piety endures, Here the sweet legends of the world remain. "Tuscany" in The Best Poems of 1923 (1924) edited by Thomas Moult

„Here was the world's worst wound.“

—  Siegfried Sassoon English poet, diarist and memoirist 1886 - 1967
Context: Here was the world's worst wound. And here with pride 'Their name liveth for evermore' the Gateway claims. Was ever an immolation so belied As these intolerably nameless names? Well might the Dead who struggled in the slime Rise and deride this sepulchre of crime. "On Passing the New Menin Gate" (1927-1928)

„You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world.“

—  Woodrow Wilson American politician, 28th president of the United States (in office from 1913 to 1921) 1856 - 1924
