“For all that exists in man, whether good or evil, is rendered conspicuous by the presence of great danger. His inmost feelings are roused -- the thought of self-preservation masters his spirit -- self-denial is put to severe proof, and wherever darkness and barbarism prevail, there the affrighted mortal flies to the idols of his superstition, and all laws, human and divine, are criminally violated.”
