“Being an Armenian is a merciless task and a heroic enterprise. It is a commandment, a mission, and a destiny that history has imposed on us from the depths of centuries. We are the shock troops of the struggle between light and darkness … And we are charged with an awesome responsibility.” Gostan Zarian,The Ship on the Mountain
