From Here to Eternity

Diamond Head, Hawaii, 1941. Pvt. Robert E. Lee Prewitt is a champion welterweight and a fine bugler. But when he refuses to join the company's boxing team, he gets "the treatment" that may break him or kill him. First Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden knows how to soldier better than almost anyone, yet he's risking his career to have an affair with the commanding officer's wife. Both Warden and Prewitt are bound by a common bond: the Army is their heart and blood . . .and, possibly, their death.

In this magnificent but brutal classic of a soldier's life, James Jones portrays the courage, violence and passions of men and women who live by unspoken codes and with unutterable despair. . .in the most important American novel to come out of World War II, a masterpiece that captures as no ther the honor and savagery of men.

That was one of the virtues of being a pessimist: nothing was ever as bad as you thought it would be.

Oto jedna z zalet tego, że ktoś jest pesymistą: nic nigdy nie jest tak złe, jak się myślało.

Love either starves to death and becomes a shadow, or else it dies young and remains a dream.

Miłość albo kona powoli i staje się cieniem, albo też umiera młodo i pozostaje snem.
