    Why do villains have so much influence? Because the honest people are terribly dense.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    I don’t believe in villains or heroes, only in right or wrong ways that individuals are taken, not by choice, but by necessity or by certain still uncomprehended influences in themselves, their circumstances and their antecedents.
    Tennessee Williams (1914–1983)
