„Dwa zła nie czynią jednego dobra.“

— Margaret Atwood
Źródło: Namiot (2006), tłum. Justyna Gardzińska

„My trade is courage and atrocities.
I look at them and do not condemn.
I write things down the way they happened,
as near as can be remembered.
I don’t ask why, because it is mostly the same.
Wars happen because the ones who start them
think they can win.“

— Margaret Atwood

Wars happen because the ones who start them think they can win.
