We would gratify all the goodness in us by punishing him, by seeing justice done. And we would gratify all the evil in us by applying justice ourselves, with our own hands, by giving evil a completely free rein, by causing pain and hurt under the guise of proper retribution.

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.
A friend of mine has a shirt with an image similar to this one screened onto it. I enjoy the feelings it brings about it in me.
I want to get a vending machine, with fun sized candy bars, and the glass in front is a magnifying glass. You’ll be mad, but it will be too late.
