The Damned Human Race

In Uncategorized on January 18, 2011 at 7:13 pm

“Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. … And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for ‘the universal brotherhood of man’ — with his mouth.”

Mark Twain, The Damned Human Race
