Quotes

"A soldier’s perception of a battle is limited by what he can see and hear.  He may see his comrades standing next to him or, if the smoke is not too thick, the enemy across the field.  He may hear the angry buzz of the Minié balls and the roar of the cannon.  But for him, there is no grand, overarching plan where soldiers move like pieces on a chessboard.  For him the fight is intensely personal, often reduced to two men:  himself and the enemy soldier trying to kill him." -- The Cause of Darkness

“Every journey must proceed at its own pace, each step following the other in its proper order. For that is the way of life.”

                        Planet Alt-Sete-Nine by BJ Neblett ...

“Man is a malcontent; a disaffected sojourner, seeking Elysium. Someday, when we can freely move in time, through space, even into the other dimensions, I’m afraid we will be disappointed. Like Alice, man, too, will discover life isn’t any better – or worse – through the looking glass, only different.”

          Collin Crowly from Elysian Dreams by BJ Neblett ...

“Love knows no boundaries, seeks no guidance; obeys no rules.”

                        From No Boundaries by BJ Neblett

...

“We are the sum total of our experiences. Those experiences – be they positive or negative – make us the person we are, at any given point in our lives. And, like a flowing river, those same experiences, and those yet to come, continue to influence and reshape the person we are, and the person we become. None of us are the same as we were yesterday, nor will be tomorrow.”

            From George by BJ Neblett    ...

“I am just a roadside attraction on your journey down life’s highway, a place you stop briefly before moving on. Years from now, in a long-forgotten box of memories, you’ll come across one of my souvenirs and think of me. And maybe you’ll smile.”

                        BJ Neblett (8-2016)

“The two greatest assets a writer can have are an unbridled imagination and to have lived an unabashed life.”

                        From All The Wrong Places by BJ Neblett

Latest Poem

Where are your bones, I wonder?

Your dust, your last breath?

I see you queued with your mates

In your final military assembly:

            Bates next to Beasley

            Gillum next to Green

            And so on.

It is a moment captured forever in brass letters,

The year scuffed and barely legible.

How does a hero sleep?  Do you dream of past valor?

Or soft shoulders and tender kisses lost forever?

This once hallowed ground is swathed in weeds,

Cannons and missiles rusted and impotent,

The fence sagging with age.

People pass by, but nobody sees.

Even the names have become ghosts.

John W. Bebout  2018
