[She Washed Her Hands Three Times. Velia Gripped The Sink, Dropping Her Head And Watching The Tinged Water Drain. Trying To Get A Grip, She Held Back Tears And Vomit, And Would Have Been Fine If Not For Seeing More Blood Splatters On Her Sleeves. She Held On To Her Last Bit Of Strength, Still Refusing To Cry. God, Let This Be A Nightmare!]

Tod Worner Quotes

"Evil, let it never be mistaken, is real. But it is inferior. It is parasitic. It is incomplete. The moment we take counsel from it, become overwhelmed by it, or put it on an equal footing with the Good of God, it will have become something entirely more dangerous. It becomes an idol."

Et je présume que vous savez à quoi a conduit cette malheureuse agitation ? Quant au lieu précis où fut trouvé ce sac à main, une consigne de gare peut dort bien servir à dissimuler un faux-pas et il est probable quelle a déjà été utilisée à cette fin ; mais on ne peut guère la considérer comme le fondement assuré dune position reconnue dans la bonne société."Lady Bracknell, Act I (Limportance dêtre Constant)" - Author: Oscar Wilde
