"She likes to dream that she’s the queen and that when the rest are dead there”ll be no one who can order her to do anything. She said, dear, that she’d burn down the whole place, burn down Gormenghast when she was the ruler and she’d live on her own, and I said she was wicked, and she said that everyone was — everyone and everything except rivers, clouds, and some rabbits. She makes me frightened sometimes."
"Be careful, lest in casting out your demon you exorcise the best thing in you."
- Friedrich Nietzsche
