His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet

25694617.jpg– It may be a simple matter for a gentleman to dispatch a deer or a grouse by squeezing the trigger of a gun, but to do to death an animal with one’s own hands or with a manual tool, no matter how well adapted to the purpose, is an entirely different matter. –

– What if it was suggested that what you believe to have been in your mind at that time was not what was actually in your mind? –

– It is quite commonplace in many disciplines, my own included, for ideas to become accepted as fact merely by virtue of being oft-repeated. –

– To put to death an individual with the sensibility and intelligence to produce an extended literary work, would, I strong aver, be a cruel and uncivilised act. –
