“الرأفة : فضيلة الملوك ، و رذيلة الجنود”
Alberto Vázquez-Figueroa, عيون الطوارق

“Ved cómo el odio y las luchas entre familias a nada conducen, más que al miedo, la locura y la muerte y cierto es que en muchos años que combatí junto a los míos contra nuestros eternos enemigos […], jamás vi nada bueno que lo justificase, porqué las rapiñas de unos con las rapiñas de otros se pagan, y los muertos de cada bando no tienen precio, sino que como una cadena van arrastrando nuevos muertos.”
Alberto Vazquez-Figueroa, Tuareg

“Yo no he venido aquí a tener ideas, sino a enfrentarme a unos enemigos a los que aún no he conseguido ni olerles los pies. Nos matan, nos hieren, nos roban, nos dejan sin agua, y si no nos violan debe ser porque no les gustan nuestros culos. ¡Estoy hasta los huevos!”
Alberto Vázquez-Figueroa
