“Nature, [character name], is what we are put on earth to rise above.”

“He was a slob. Did you ever see him eat? Starving children could fill their bellies on the food that ended up in his beard and on his clothes. Dogs would gather to watch him eat. I’ve never understood gluttony, but I hate it."

“And you, you imposter, I’ll have your memory pulled so fast you’ll never forget it!”
