May I point out that I have gotten a chance to examine your counterparts closely. They are brutal, savage, uncivilized and illogical. They are in every way examples of Homo sapiens, the very flower of humanity.
– Mr. Spock
Denied anything ardently desired, the individual or state will argue and parley just so long – then, if the impelling motive be sufficiently great, will cast aside every rule and break down every acquired inhibition, plunging viciously after the object wished; all the more fantastically savage because of previous repression.
– H. P. Lovecraft
People either think I’m this totally savage, idiot-savant genius guy who’s lucked out or they think I’m a super-manipulative crafty businessman, this kind of MBA guy who’s spotted a gap in the market and knows how to create a product for it. It’s flattering, but I’ve not got that much of a gameplan.
– Irvine Welsh
