miners - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The miner, born to miners, had no chance for any family life or nurture. For everyone from the pregnant woman to the young child was sent into the coal tunnels until they were beyond exhaustion each day. And this is how they lived, starving all their lives for everything a human is born to need.
The miner was born into suffering, into constant hunger, into a struggle that would end in early death. There is no romance in such things and to conjure any dishonours the dead and the generations born to parents who had not the time, resources, energy or cultural know-how to act as good parents. The miners scarred the generations as much as the hills... and the "spoils"... well, there are mansions and country estates founded by those.
