„We may no longer be able to count; but Fate will count.“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935

Light (1919), Ch. XVI - De Profundis Clamavi
Kontext: We may no longer be able to count; but Fate will count. Some day the men will be killed, and the women and children. And they also will disappear — they who stand erect upon the ignominious death of the soldiers, — they will disappear along with the huge and palpitating pedestal in which they were rooted. But they profit by the present, they believe it will last as long as they, and as they follow each other they say, "After us, the deluge." Some day all war will cease for want of fighters.
