When you have shot one bird flying you have shot all birds flying. They are all different and they fly in different ways but the sensation is the same and the last one is as good as the first.
That is what we are supposed to do when we are at our best - make it all up - but make it up so truly that later it will happen that way.
They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.
The only thing that could spoil a day was people. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.
