“Most people think of criminals as hunchbacked, cross-eyed little monsters slithering through the dark leaving a trail of slime. They're not. They're human beings.”
George R. Dekle Sr.

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Circumstantial evidence is a very tricky thing. It may seem to point very straight to one thing, but if you shift your own point of view a little, you may find it pointing in an equally uncompromising manner to something entirely different”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

“WATSON: Then you are yourself inclining to the supernatural explanation.     
HOLMES: if Dr. Mortimer's surmise should be correct, and we are dealing with forces outside the ordinary laws of Nature, there is an end of our investigation. But we are bound to exhaust all other hypotheses before falling back upon this one.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of the Baskervilles
