human monstrosity

People like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves… they feel better then. They find it easier to live.
Andrzej Sapkowski
Sometimes a person’s monstrosity seems superhuman.
Louise Erdrich
Beware the dark pool at the bottom of our hearts. In its icy, black depths dwell strange and twisted creatures it is best not to disturb.
Sue Grafton
Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions.
Primo Levi
