Birds Without Wings by ennil Birds Without Wings by ennil

"Where does it all begin? History has no beginnings, for everything that happens becomes the cause or pretext for what occurs afterwards, and this chain of cause and pretext stretches back to the Palaeolithic age, when the first Cain of one tribe murdered the first Abel of another. All war is fratricide, and there is therefore an infinite chain of blame that winds its circuitous route back and forth across the path and under the feet of every people and every nation, so that a people who are the victims of one time become the victimisers a generation later, and newly liberated nations resort immediately to the means of their former oppressors. The triple contagions of nationalism, utopianism and religious absolutism effervesce together into an acid that corrodes the moral metal of a race, and it shamelessly and even proudly performs deeds that it would deem vile if they were done by any other."
- Louis de Bernieres

Can't get a better quote, my friend's keeping my book hostage.

Oh by the way, get up your asses and buy the nearest copy of Birds Without Wings by Louis de Bernieres, one of my favourite books ever.

One of my favorite deviants, and a delightful young artist. Birds Without Wings by ~ennil is another example of why you should be paying attention. Stay classy Ennil. ;) ( Featured by zerocomplex )
