Flash of the Sun---Quotes

Flash of the Sun



"A nationalist will blindly follow his country to his death out of love for it. A patriot will stand up for  and even against his country to his death out of love for it."
                                               From Flash of the Sun

"It is not something we often find out; but most of the specially-gifted have a deep desire to be ordinary.”
                                               From  Flash of the Sun

"A yesterday missed can never be found even in a fine tomorrow."
                                               From  Flash of the Sun

"Only a fool would find happiness from an achievement that is detrimental to  those he loves."
                                               From Flash of the Sun

Geopolitics is a mighty joke that is not meant to be funny because unfortunately, it often results in the loss of life.” 
                                               From Flash of the Sun
