Notes, topics or text 

BR writes about World War I. "The world has become so dreadful that it is hard to go on." "One of the hardest things to me is the hostility to truth in all countries." "The whole tragedy seems to me wholly futile, and incapable of leading to good, unless by revolting the conscience of Europe." "I am convinced it is wrong to fight, and that the Sermon on the Mount should be taken as practical politics." He can write of nothing except the war. He remarks on the similarity of English and Germans.

"At the last, England could not have kept out".

"The casualty lists are heart-rending".
