Peter Gethers Quotes

"People happily kill other people in the name of everything from a god to a country to an overly developed sense of annoyance when someone cuts across two lanes on a freeway without signaling.

Quotes About Revolt

Id grown comfortable with the particulars of evil. Theres a frightful muteness that dwells at the center of all unspeakable things, and I had found my way into it.
