I love quotes and while reading a history of the Civil War I came across these from Private George N. Knoll.
“That which takes the breath away also makes the heart beat faster.” George N. Knoll
“You have little understanding as to my capacity to love you.” George N. Knoll
“For only by separation, does man understand and curse the distance between.” George N. Knoll
George N. Knoll , Private, Confederate Army, 1861
He saw the division of the nation and wanted peace. He felt the distance between he and the one he was separated from and spoke of his capacity to love.
Unity and love.
