shows I watched this summer ♦ Band of Brothers
→ “‘Don’t do anything stupid?’ Who the hell’s he talking to? Bunch of morons who volunteered to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Can you get any more stupid than that?”

I love Twitter (and…well, in one case, Facebook…though Richard hasn’t seen the new version of his portrait yet).
“The result of these shared experiences was a closeness unknown to all outsiders. Comrades are closer than friends, closer than brothers. Their relationship is different from that of lovers. Their trust in, and knowledge of, each other is total. They got to know each other’s life stories, what they did before they came into the Army, where and why they volunteered, what they liked to eat and drink, what their capabilities were. On a night march they would hear a cough and know who it was; on a night maneuver they would see someone sneaking through the woods and know who it was from his silhouette.”
