Ten people on the street beat the fucking crap out of somebody and they'd all get ten years for it, where, in prison, your mates put on shields and riot gear and fucking pour into somebody's cell and do the same thing, and they're doing a public service. Explain that. And then they wonder why the person they just beat up so there's blood all across the walls and screaming what can be heard from one end of the wing to the other doesn't turn into a nice boy. Do you know what I mean? Do you? Do you? Nah, of course not. You ain't got the faintest fucking clue, have you?"

7. "The afternoon breeze would incite to a weird and flabby activity all that crowded mass of clothing, with its vague suggestions of drowned, mutilated and flattened humanity. Trunks without heads waved at you arms without hands; legs without feet kicked fantastically with collapsible flourishes; and there were long white garments, that taking the wind fairly through their neck openings edged with lace, became for a moment violently distended as by the passage of obese and invisible bodies. On these days you could make out that ship at a great distance by the multi-coloured grotesque riot going on abaft her mizzen-mast."
Author: Joseph Conrad

Instead of reading her the riot act, he stared into her eyes, then down at her mouth. His entire demeanor changed. He looked just as tense, but now for different, hotter reasons.He still stared intently at her mouth when Priss heard the lock click open.

Damn, but resisting Trace wouldn't be easy, not if he kept looking at her like that. "You're coming in, too?""Yes." Suddenly, almost violently, he turned away from her and left the car. Still a gentleman, he strode around to her side and opened her door. "Let's get this night over with."Well. That sounded insulting."

It was hard to believe that anything could be so consistently cheap and showy and vulgar year after year. each year I thought that at least one class act would force its way into a booth or sideshow, but I was always mistaken. The lure of the fair was the perfect harmony of its joyous decadence, its burned-out dishonored vulgarity, its riot of colors and smells, its jangling, tawdry music, and its wicked glimpse into the outlaw life of hucksters, tattoo parlors, monstrous freaks, and strippers."
Author: Pat Conroy
13. "If my self was my dwelling, then my body resembled an orchard that surrounded it. I could either cultivate that orchard to its capacity or leave it for the weeds to run riot in.There are some truths in this world that one cannot see unless one unbends one's posture."
Author: Yukio Mishima
