“Life is glorious, but it can be counted on to be cruel.”
Noah Gordon, The Last Jew

“A técnica da castração era básica. Na sua mão esquerda o cirurgião prendia o objecto a ser amputado. Segurando uma lâmina afiada na mão direita, ele removia as partes com um único golpe da lâmina, já que a velocidade era essencial. Um cataplasma de cinzas quentes era imediatamente colocado sobre a área a sangrar, e o macho fora para sempre alterado”
Noah Gordon, The Physician

“Esta Pérsia parecia tentar fazer de cada homem um cornudo, à vez”
Noah Gordon, The Physician
