Quotes: Thousand-Yard Stare
"You've heard of a thousand-yard stare? This guy had a million mile one. He'd seen forever. He'd been somewhere else, and I don't know, sometimes I wonder if he'd maybe had a pretty good fucking conversation with someone he met there."

Their eyes stared into space as if transfixed by a vision of terror.
Marshal Petain on the troops returning from the Battle of Verdun.
