    I believe there’s a killer in all of us. I know there’s one inside me. When you know the killer in you and you know also that you do not want to kill, you have to set yourself upon a course of learning. Not to kill that killer then, but to control it.

    And dost not know the Garment from the Man.

    Nor can’st thou ever change Kate into Nan.
