For the Gods of the World to see“

—  Voltairine de Cleyre American anarchist writer and feminist 1866 - 1912
Context: Written in red their protest stands, For the Gods of the World to see; On the dooming wall their bodiless hands have blazoned "Upharsin," and flaring brands Illumine the message: "Seize the lands! Open the prisons and make men free!" Flame out the living words of the dead Written-in-red. "Written-In-Red" de Cleyre's last poem, dedicated "To Our Living Dead in Mexico's Struggle"; first lines.

„For those who still said "Red Front" or "God save the Crown!"
And for those who were not courageous
But were beaten nevertheless.“

—  Stephen Vincent Benét poet, short story writer, novelist 1898 - 1943
Context: For those who still said "Red Front" or "God save the Crown!" And for those who were not courageous But were beaten nevertheless. For those who spit out the bloody stumps of their teeth Quietly in the hall, Sleep well on stone or iron, watch for the time And kill the guard in the privy before they die, Those with the deep-socketed eyes and the lamp burning.

„They were going to look at war, the red animal — war, the blood-swollen god. And they were deeply engrossed in this march.“

—  Stephen Crane American novelist, short story writer, poet, and journalist 1871 - 1900
Context: The line, broken into moving fragments by the ground, went calmly on through fields and woods. The youth looked at the men nearest him, and saw, for the most part, expressions of deep interest, as if they were investigating something that had fascinated them. One or two stepped with overvaliant airs as if they were already plunged into war. Others walked as upon thin ice. The greater part of the untested men appeared quiet and absorbed. They were going to look at war, the red animal — war, the blood-swollen god. And they were deeply engrossed in this march. Ch. 3
