[We've Already Had Malthus, The Friend Of Humanity. But The Friend Of Humanity With Shaky Moral Principles Is The Devourer Of Humanity, To Say Nothing Of His Conceit; For, Wound The Vanity Of Any One Of These Numerous Friends Of Humanity, And He's Ready To Set Fire To The World Out Of Petty Revenge - Like All The Rest Of Us, Though, In That, To Be Fair; Like Myself, Vilest Of All, For I Might Well Be The First To Bring The Fuel And Run Away Myself.]

CN Faust Quotes

"Traveled so far, and not yet have they come across anything of interest, he mused, except, of course, for that nest of goblins I managed to stir up. Indeed, his brother had always been a valiant fool; why not give him some excitement?He always did possess a love for a good fight, and who am I to deny him?The glass sphere, responding to his thoughts, zoomed in on the mountain nearby where Shrukian camped, and by putting both his hands on the spheres sides and closing his eyes, Pharun could all but smell the power that radiated from its depths. He could taste it on the back of his tongue, and it awake all sorts of things inside of him. The power tasted of death and ash, and it was scalding hot, pouring down his throat like blood of the freshly dead. He did not need further searching to know what kind of power he was sampling.He smiled to himself, and it came out a satisfied smirk."

The rich, the famous, the big-dicked, the slim-and-gorgeous - they can incite an envy so urgent that you can escape it only by translating it into pity. People who live like that never end up happy.

Quotes About Restoration Comedy

"Extremely self-conscious in its craft, in many ways The Hand of Ethelberta is an exploration of fiction as illusion, which involves parody of the conventions it employs; romance, melodrama and farce, and a rejection of realism for absurdist and surrealistic effects.
