“The pursuit of truth, not of facts, is the business of fiction.”
Oakley Hall, Warlock

“Any man who has got himself set over others and don't have any responsibility to something bigger than him is a son of a bitch.”
Oakley Hall, Warlock

“As one half of our nature seeks to create heroes to worship, the other must ceaselessly attempt to cast them down and discover evidence of feet-of-clay, in order to label them as mere lucky fellows, or as villains-were-the-facts-but-known, and the eminent and great are ground between the millstones of envy, and reduced again to common size.”
Oakley Hall, Warlock
