Author: Aldous Huxley

Either that or to come to realize that the hunger and the appeasement are two entirely different things. They're unrelated. One will never quell the other."She thought about this.

She finally said, "This is not who I want to be.""Then be someone else."Deborah/Lynley"

If you were not one of them, you were a lesser human, and thus deserved to be treated in any way they saw fit. And if that meant blowing up airliners and buses full of innocent civilians, then so be it."
Author: Vince Flynn
