"Alas for those shameless ones who, in the name of expediency,
oppress humanity and extend amorality. I do not see that such actions
have gained you either pleasure or joy."
-- Aryasura, The Marvellous Companion


Now as through this world I ramble
I see lots of funny men
Some will rob you with a six gun
And some with a fountain pen.

But as through your life you travel
As through your life you roam
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

-- Woody Guthrie, "Pretty Boy Floyd"
