[There Was A Great Joke That Was Forever Doing The Rounds In The Jail And It Was Probably Funny Not Because It Had A Humorous Punchline But Because It Was So Very True At A Deep Psychological Level. Put Anyone In That Jail And Soon Enough They'd Actually Become A Cruel, Twisted, Sadistic And Heartless Thug. And Some Of The Prisoners Were Just As Bad.]

Quotes About Forneus

"The four of us were together at last--me, the angel, the devil, and my demon.

Instead, I was struggling to keep my eyes open, the angel was looking at the ground, Oz was glaring at the trunk, and for some reason I just knew that Forneus, locked down and wrapped in a sheet, was glaring right back." - Author: Katherine Pine

Quotes About Prose Fiction

"The claim at the heart of this book has been carefully researched by several generations of scholars and is orthodox in academic circles, if not beyond. Christians under the Roman Empire were neither constantly persecuted nor martyred in huge numbers for their faith. They were prosecuted from time to time for alleged sedition, holding illegal meetings or refusing to sacrifice to the emperor. They were, like other convicts, sometimes tortured and executed in horrible ways. They seem to have been regarded by many Romans with distaste as a particularly silly superstition. But Christian stories of thousands of individual and mass martyrdoms over centuries have at best a limited basis in historical fact, and in many cases are sheer fiction." - Author: Teresa Morgan
