Inscription

Love’s philosophy

The Fountains mingle with the river, and the rivers with the ocean. The winds of heaven mix forever, with a sweet emotion; nothing in the world is single; all things by a law divine. In one spirit meet and mingle, why not I with thine? P B Shelley (1819)

In memory of all women and children who lost loved ones due to wars and conflict in the 20th century.

"Lest we forget"
