Then he felt as though he were dealing with another species of human being, in some cases a higher one, in others a lower. He secretly admired the weak, pale, little girl and had picked her to be his wife. That was still the only way he could think of a woman - as a wife. He danced in a very chaste and proper manner, but he heard awful stories about his pals, stories he didnt understand until later. They could dance the waltz backwards around the room in a very indecent way, and they told naughty stories about the girls." - Author: August Strindberg
