Donatien Alphonse Francois Comte de Sade
"Murder... like all destruction, is one of the first laws of nature."
"It's silly to go on pretending that under the skin we are all brothers.
The truth is more likely that under the skin we are all cannibals,
assassins, traitors, liars, hypocrites, poltroons."
