Murder is born of love, and love attains the greatest intensity in murder.
The universe appears to me like an immense, inexorable torture-garden.
Passions, greed, hatred, and lies; law, social institutions, justice, love, glory, heroism, and religion: these are its monstrous flowers and its hideous instruments of eternal human suffering.
When one tears away the veils and shows them naked, people's souls give off such a pungent smell of decay.
