The expression of one's thoughts and feelings
Will do more to educate and relieve the mind
Than any amount of reading


The result of other people's thoughts should act on us but as a suggestion
As a stimulant of one's own


One's attitude should be both critical and sceptical from the outset
Extremes should be avoided


No one is completely right
No one is completely wrong


Above all

Is misunderstanding


From the notebook of 2nd/Lt Robin Blacker
Aged 18yrs
Coldstream Guards
France 1915

3 weeks prior to being killed in action at the battle of Loos


Acknowledgments to "Have you forgotten yet?"
