Scarce heard amid the guns below #Quote by John McCrae
Remembrance Day quotes by Justin Trudeau
#3. Today, we come together to honour the brave Canadians in uniform who have served our country throughout our history. They've built peace. They've defended democracy. And they've enabled countless people to live in freedom – at home and around the world.

Remembrance Day was first held in 1919 on the first anniversary of the armistice agreement that ended the First World War. A century later, our respect and admiration for Canada's fallen and veterans has not wavered. We owe them and their families an immeasurable debt of gratitude. We honour all those who have served, including the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit veterans and current service members.

Today, we pay tribute to our veterans, to those who have been injured in the line of duty, and to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. They stood for liberty, and sacrificed their future for the future of others. Their selflessness and courage continue to inspire Canadians who serve today.

At 11:00 a.m., I encourage everyone to observe the two minutes of silence in recognition of the brave Canadians who fought for us. Today, we thank our service members, past and present, for all they have done to keep us and people around the world safe. They represent the very best of what it means to be Canadian.

Lest we forget. #Quote by Justin Trudeau
Remembrance Day quotes by Kathryn J. Atwood
#4. Ironically, the memory of the women heroes of World War I was largely eclipsed by the very women they had inspired. The more blatant evil enacted into law by Nazi Germany during the Second World War ensured that those who fought against it would continue to fascinate long after the first war had become a vague, unpleasant memory - one brought to mind only by fading photographs of serious, helmeted young men standing in sandbagged trenches or smiling young women in ankle-length nursing uniforms, or by the presence of poppies in Remembrance Day ceremonies. #Quote by Kathryn J. Atwood
Remembrance Day quotes by Justin Trudeau
#5. The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Remembrance Day:

"Today, we pause to remember and honour the Canadian women and men who have served our country and stood on guard for us and the values we hold dear.

"Every generation of Canadians has answered the call to serve. From Ypres to Dieppe to Korea to Afghanistan, our servicemen and women have shown courage as a matter of course, and stood resilient in the face of great adversity.

"This year, in marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation, we have paused and reflected on some of our most important military milestones. In keeping alive the memory of battles like Passchendaele, Hill 70, Vimy, and Dieppe, we remind this generation, and future generations, where their freedom comes from.

"We owe an immeasurable debt to our veterans, to the fallen, and to the families who love them. Just as our servicemen and women have taken care of us, we must also take care of them. It is our sacred duty as a country to be there for our heroes when they need us most.

"At 11:00 am, I encourage all Canadians – no matter where you are – to observe the two minutes of silence. We remember those who stepped forward to serve, who endured horror and hell, and made extraordinary sacrifices for our freedom.

"We stand together, a grateful country, with poppies close to our hearts.

"Lest we forget. #Quote by Justin Trudeau
Remembrance Day quotes by Carl Sandburg
#6. Valor is a gift. Those having it never know for sure whether they have it till the test comes. And those having it in one test never know for sure if they will have it when the next test comes. #Quote by Carl Sandburg
Remembrance Day quotes by Laurence Binyon
#7. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. #Quote by Laurence Binyon
Remembrance Day quotes by Sylvia Day
#8. That you can know what i have in me and still want me as much as i want you. i go to sleep every night afraid i'll wake up and you'll be gone.or that i scared you away ... that i dreamed you-" "no. Gideon." jesus he broke my heart every day. shattered me. #Quote by Sylvia Day
Remembrance Day quotes by Thornton Wilder
#9. The mind of Caesar. It is the reverse of most men's. It rejoices in committing itself. To us arrive each day a score of challenges; we must say yes or no to decisions that will set off chains of consequences. Some of us deliberate; some of us refuse the decision, which is itself a decision; some of us leap giddily into the decision, setting our jaws and closing our eyes, which is the sort of decision of despair. Caesar embraces decision. It is as though he felt his mind to be operating only when it is interlocking itself with significant consequences. Caesar shrinks from no responsibility. He heaps more and more upon his shoulders. #Quote by Thornton Wilder
Remembrance Day quotes by Ella Eyre
#10. I was a competitive swimmer as a teenager, only stopping when I got persistent ear infections. Every day was a 6 A.M. start to swim before lessons, then choir or dance classes after. #Quote by Ella Eyre
Remembrance Day quotes by Brigham Young
#11. All the difference between men and angels is, men are passing through the day of trial that angels have already passed through. #Quote by Brigham Young
Remembrance Day quotes by Joyce Meyer
#12. It's very hard to think negative thoughts about someone you're taking to the Lord every day. You'll be amazed at how God will change your heart toward that person; your thoughts and ultimately your actions could very well change the way he behaves. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Remembrance Day quotes by Suzanne Somers
#13. Do not skip meals. Eat three meals a day and eat until you feel satisfied and comfortably full. #Quote by Suzanne Somers
Remembrance Day quotes by John Hodgman
#14. I Know you are asking: What if I am wrong?
What if RAGNAROK does not come? What if it does not happen the way I say it is going to happen?
I suppose that is a possibility.
Perhaps the Mayans WERE wrong.
Maybe we WILL enter a new era of consciousness.
Maybe we will NOT destroy ourselves with technology.
Perhaps it will be that some new old god comes. Say his name is DOZGOTH, the 701st, and say he takes pity on us. And a thousand years after all the suffering of RAGNOROK, he will retcon us back to the very day this book was pusblished.
You will remember nothing of what happened or what you did to survive. The only evidence that any of this ever happened will be this book, and the fact that ou now have a tentacle instead of an arm. But you will explain that away simply by saying you are wearing an octopus sleeve. The mind can explain so many things when it wants to close its eyes and sleep.
Perhaps only one person will remember what really happened, and he will be named Jonathan Coulton. But he cannot tell anyone, for he is but an animal. #Quote by John Hodgman
Remembrance Day quotes by John Locke
#15. It is labour indeed that puts the difference on everything. #Quote by John Locke
Remembrance Day quotes by A.E. Via
#16. Austin. Interesting you were able to make it. I was just talking to Justin about you the other day. He said he hadn't seen you in months." Not since I'd fucked his brains out and he left my apartment almost wearing a goddamn disguise. Fuckin' thirty-one-year-old closet case. #Quote by A.E. Via
Remembrance Day quotes by Amy Poehler
#17. It also reminds you of the simple truths that we purposely forget every day or else we would never get out of bed. Things like, nothing lasts forever and relationships can end. The best that can happen is you learn a little more about what you can handle and you stay soft through the pain. Perhaps you feel a little wiser. Maybe your experience can be of help to others. #Quote by Amy Poehler
Remembrance Day quotes by Eve Ensler
#18. I believe in irony. And if V-Day has taught me anything, it's that if you go out with artistic, outrageous irony and humor, people are drawn to it. #Quote by Eve Ensler
Remembrance Day quotes by Ernst Von Salomon
#19. Of course it was not only the law that interfered with our management of the paper. The politicians, too, soon took a hand. The Oberpräsident of Schleswig-Holstein, a man named Kürbis (which is German for pumpkin) forbad its publication; it appeared the next day, entitled Die Westküste [The West Coat]. This too was banned, and for a short time my brother's wish was fulfilled and we edited Die Grüne Front. I, too, had the gratification of seeing my original suggestion realised whn it became, in due course, Die Sturmglocke. Finally, the Oberpräsident forbad us from publishing any paper at all which was not purely concerned with technical agricultural matters. So we rechristened it Der Kürbis, aand the leading article consisted of variations on the subject of pumpking as given in the encyclopaedia; we expatiated on how pumkins flourish best in plenty of dung and on the disagreeable nature of their blossom's scwent. Thenceforth the paper resumed its original name of Das Landvolk and that was that. #Quote by Ernst Von Salomon
Remembrance Day quotes by Jules Verne
#20. I believe that water will one day be employed as fuel, that hydrogen and oxygen which constitute it, used singly or together, will furnish an inexhaustible source of heat and light, of an intensity of which coal is not capable. #Quote by Jules Verne
Remembrance Day quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#21. I promised myself that if ever I had some money that I would savor a cigar each day after lunch and dinner. This is the only resolution of my youth that I have kept, and the only realized ambition which has not brought disillusion. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Remembrance Day quotes by Brian Wilson
#22. I wake up in the morning and I say 'Ahh! Today's the day for a song! I'm going to write a song today!' And I do. I write a song. #Quote by Brian Wilson
Remembrance Day quotes by Vince Kehres
#23. [The movies] glamorize game day a little bit too much. It's such a focus. They miss a lot of the nuts and bolts, and the time that goes into the preparation each week, or each couple of days in basketball. #Quote by Vince Kehres
Remembrance Day quotes by Lynn Cowell
#24. On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, 'Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.'" John 7:37-38 (NIV)

As soon as we were old enough to understand fairy tales, we were told to start looking for the one.

Someday my prince will come.
Someday I'll find my love.

As we got older, Prince Charming looked a bit different. Our teenage hearts thrilled when the latest vocal sensation sang about finding us and how our love would last forever.

Wherever we turned, we were told our soul mate was waiting. And we were led to believe we were "less than" if we didn't find the one who would complete us!

Even now, whether we're 15, 45 or 75, the equation hasn't changed: "Guy + Me = Valuable."

So, if the movies, books and songs are so right, how come when we find the one, we can still feel like we're missing something? Why are there married people who are lonely with an emptiness that marriage can't fill? Our hearts can get confused if our reality doesn't match fantasy and we wonder:

Maybe my one isn't really the one? Or, whether we're married or single, we might wonder, is the one for me still out there?

In this place of uncertainty our hearts can grow perplexed. If we find ourselves in this vulnerable place of questioning, and all of a sudden a guy who seems #Quote by Lynn Cowell
Remembrance Day quotes by John Steinbeck
#25. Cyrus wanted a woman to take care of Adam. He needed someone to keep house and cook, and a servant cost money. He was a vigorous man and needed the body of a woman, and that too cost money- unless you were married to it. Within two weeks Cyrus had wooed, wedded, bedded, and impregnated her. His neighbors did not find his action hasty. It was quite normal in that day for a man to use up three or four wives in a normal lifetime. p.19 #Quote by John Steinbeck
Remembrance Day quotes by Danny Wallace
#26. Sometimes the little opportunities that fly at us each day can have the biggest impact. #Quote by Danny Wallace
Remembrance Day quotes by Ross Douthat
#27. In their quest to be inclusive and tolerant and up-to-date, the accommodationists imitated his scandalously comprehensive love, while ignoring his scandalously comprehensive judgments. They used his friendship with prostitutes as an excuse to ignore his explicit condemnations of fornication and divorce. They turned his disdain for the religious authorities of his day and his fondness for tax collectors and Roman soldiers into a thin excuse for privileging the secular realm over the sacred. While recognizing his willingness to dine with outcasts and converse with nonbelievers, they deemphasized the crucial fact that he had done so in order to heal them and convert them - ridding the leper of his sickness, telling the Samaritans that soon they would worship in spirit and truth, urging the woman taken in adultery to go, and from now on sin no more. #Quote by Ross Douthat
Remembrance Day quotes by John Holt
#28. Any child who can spend an hour or two a day, or more if he wants, with adults that he likes, who are interested in the world and like to talk about it, will on most days learn far more from their talk than he would learn in a week of school. #Quote by John Holt
Remembrance Day quotes by Thomas More
#29. Then, too, the senate has a rule that no point is discussed on the same day it is brought up, but rather it is put off till the next meeting; they do this so that someone who blurts out the first thing that occurs to him will not proceed to think up arguments to defend his position instead of looking for what is of use to the commonwealth, being willing to damage the public welfare rather than his own reputation, ashamed, as it were, in a perverse and wrong-headed way, to admit that his first view was short-sighted. From the start such a person should have taken care to speak with deliberation rather than haste. #Quote by Thomas More
Remembrance Day quotes by Johnnie Moore
#30. Their faith is not an Islamic one, but a satanic one. The threat of ISIS is a threat to the livelihood of every sensible person on the planet, and in its crosshairs is the faith of the world's two billion Christians and nearly all of its Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists. If they have their way, you won't live another day. #Quote by Johnnie Moore
Remembrance Day quotes by Phil Klay
#31. You can't describe it to someone who wasn't there, you can hardly remember how it was yourself because it makes so little sense. And to act like somebody could live and fight for months in that shit and not go insane, well, that's what's really crazy. And then Alex is gonna go and act like a big hero, telling everybody how bad we were. We weren't bad. I wanted to shoot every Iraqi I saw, every day. And I never did. #Quote by Phil Klay
Remembrance Day quotes by E.B. White
#32. Write about it by day and dream about it by night. #Quote by E.B. White
Remembrance Day quotes by Amanda Penland
#33. Life's to short to worry so much about what you get done in one day. #Quote by Amanda Penland
Remembrance Day quotes by Sylvia Day
#34. My life was ordered. Now, it's an adventure. #Quote by Sylvia Day
Remembrance Day quotes by Kylie Scott
#35. What's the plan?
"We run." Daniel informed her with all due sincerity.
"Huh. One day soon can the plan involve a touch more complexity? Not that I'm co9mplaining or anything."
"Complain, you? Never. You're a constant delight. #Quote by Kylie Scott
Remembrance Day quotes by Donald Trump
#36. When I tell somebody to do something I'm not going to get a lobbyist calling me the next day to say please don't do that even though it's good for America. #Quote by Donald Trump
Remembrance Day quotes by Neal Stephenson
#37. but if you have studied that, everything since will seem like repetition and all the particulars as to how the Saecular Power of my day was organized will remind you of more or less ancient forerunners, but with less majesty and clarity since the ancients were all doing it for the first time and believed they were on to something. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
