"So what did Ed say?" Hamlin asks interested.

"He said," I begin, "When I see a pretty girl walking down the street I think two things. One part of me wants to take her out and talk to her and be real nice and sweet and treat her right." I stop, finish my J & B in one swallow.

"What does the other part of him think?" Hamlin asks tentaively.

"What her head would look like on a stick,' I say.

Quotations From The Anarchists - Edited by Paul Berman

The point of attack in the political struggle lies, not in the legislative bodies, but in the people. Political rights do not originate in parliaments; they are, rather, forced upon parliaments from without. And even their enactment into law has for a long time been no guarantee of their security.... Governments... are always inclined to restrict or to abrogate completely rights and freedoms that have been achieved if they imagine that the people will put up no resistance.

Rudolf Rocker, Anarcho-Syndicalism, 1938

When her husband came home and they sat down to dinner, they presently heard the Crab's little voice saying, "Give me some too." They were all very much surprised, but they gave him something to eat. When the old man came to take away the plate which had contained the Crab's dinner, he found it full of gold, and as the same thing happened every day he soon became very fond of the Crab.

One day the Crab said to the fisherman's wife, "Go to the King and tell him I wish to marry his youngest daughter."

Andrew Lang, Yellow Fairy Book, 1894

4. There is a finite probability that particles may "tunnel" through or make a quantum leap through impenetrable barriers. This is one of more sunning predictions of quantum theory. On the atomic level, this prediction has had nothing less than spectacular success. "Tunneling," or quantum leaps through barriers, has survived every experimental challenge. In fact, a world without tunneling is now unimaginable

...he told me that he had once searched Oystein's drawers and had actually found a dildo with shit on it. He was a homo, always saying how pussy was disgusting. We didn't want anything to do with him.

Vikernes also later wrote down his recollections about Aarseth's video collection and the type of material he was fascinated by, stating that Oystein

spent large parts of his time watching child pornography--disgusting films with hermaphrodites having anal intercourse with "man," so-called "snuff" films where ordinary people are kidnapped and tortured to death in front of the camera. For example--I have been eagerly told descriptions of what these films are life from [Aarseth]--dildos with nails pushed into women's crotches, or they are nailed to tables through their labias.

^I'm sorry, man, but that was completely disgusting and offensive.

Waiting, he heard drops of rain beating on his helmet but at first he could feel none on his outstretched hand. Then, filling all the distance, an undulating gauze of rain came billowing over the edge of the ravine from the left. A moment later the view below became blurred and a kind of growling sigh rose from the lines of soldiers on either side. Gel-Ethlin took half a dozen steps forward, as though to see better through the moving mist of rain. As he did so a band of shaggy-haired men, half-savage in appearance and carrying various weapons, came tramping together around the curve of the road below and stopped dead at the sight of the Beklan army confronting them.
