A land without ruins.

A land without ruins is a land without memories. A land without memories is a land without a history. ‘Crowns of roses fade; crowns of thorns endure. Calvaries and Crucifixions take deepest hold of humanity. The triumphs of might are transient; they pass and are forgotten. The sufferings of right are deepest on the chronicles of Nations.’
