"Swift pictures of himself, apart, yet in himself, came to him - a blue desperate figure leading lurid charges with one knee forward and a broken blade high - a blue, determined figure standing before a crimson and steel assault, getting calmly killed on a high place before the eyes of all." - The Red Badge of Courage

Dear heaven I think I'm in love. What's worse is the man's been dead for over 100 years. That structure though, that description, makes me go a little weak in the knees.
