By Alejandro Viñao to material from Agamemnon by Aeschylus, Stanley Baldwin, Ghandi, Hemingway, Henry Miller and Jonathan Swift.

War ! the mad game the world so loves to play (Jonathan Swift)
would end if the dead could return (Stanley Baldwin)
An eye for an eye and we shall all be blind (Ghandi)

They sent forth men to battle,
But no such men return;
And home, to claim
their welcome,
Come ashes in an urn. (Agamemnon by Aeschylus)

But you will die, brother, if you go to it long enough.
You will die like a dog for no good reason. (Hemingway)

We kill because we are afraid of our own shadow (Henry Miller)
