Older men declare war. But it is youth that must fight and die. And it is youth who must inherit the tribulation, the sorrow and the triumphs that are the aftermath of war.


Herbert Hoover

Herbert Clark Hoover (August 10, 1874 – October 20, 1964) was the 31st President of the United States (1929–1933). He was a professional mining engineer and was raised as a Quaker. A Republican, Hoover served as head of the U.S. Food Administration during World War I, and became internationally known for humanitarian relief efforts in war-time Belgium. As the United States Secretary of Commerce in the 1920s under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge, he promoted partnerships between government and business under the rubric "economic modernization". In the presidential election of 1928, Hoover easily won the Republican nomination, despite having no elected-office experience.

    los hombres mayores declaran la guerra. Pero es la juventud la que debe luchar y morir. y es la juventud la que debe heredar la tribulación, la tristeza y los triunfos que son las secuelas de la guerra.

    बड़े आदमी युद्ध की घोषणा करते हैं। लेकिन यह युवा है कि लड़ना और मरना चाहिए। और यह वह युवा है जिसे युद्ध के बाद होने वाले क्लेश, दुःख और विजय का सामना करना पड़ता है।

    ವಯಸ್ಸಾದ ಪುರುಷರು ಯುದ್ಧ ಘೋಷಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ ಯುವಕರು ಹೋರಾಡಬೇಕು ಮತ್ತು ಸಾಯಬೇಕು. ಮತ್ತು ಯುದ್ಧದ ನಂತರದ ಕ್ಲೇಶ, ದುಃಖ ಮತ್ತು ವಿಜಯಗಳನ್ನು ಆನುವಂಶಿಕವಾಗಿ ಪಡೆಯುವುದು ಯುವಕರು.

    starsi mężczyźni wypowiadają wojnę. ale to młodzież musi walczyć i umrzeć. i to młodość musi odziedziczyć ucisk, smutek i triumfy, które są następstwem wojny.

    homens mais velhos declaram guerra. mas é a juventude que deve lutar e morrer. e são os jovens que devem herdar a tribulação, a tristeza e os triunfos que resultam da guerra.
