This passage is taken from Stephen Crane's novel, The Red Badge of Courage. The "rewordified" version is in the picture to the right.
"Previously he had never felt obliged to wrestle too seriously with this question.

in ultimate success, and bothering little about means and roads. But here he was confronted with a thing of moment. It had suddenly appeared to him that perhaps in a battle he might run. He was forced to admit that as far as war was concerned he knew nothing of himself."
