What a book a devil's chaplain might write on the clumsy, wasteful, blundering, low, and horribly cruel work of nature!
The loss of liberty which must attend being a wife was of all things the most horrible to my imagination.
I am a smoker, I'm ashamed to say. I had given it up for many years, then picked it up again. It's a horrible habit. I struggle with myself all the time. And I love to smoke.
Terrorism is a horrible thing that is the great threat to civilization on our planet.

I was in two very horrible bands.

Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal's deed, however calculated can be compared. For there to be an equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high;
