This evil, this concept, it comes from disappointment, from bitterness!
Don’t you see? Children of Satan! Children of God!
Is this the only question you bring to me, is this the only power that obsesses you, so that you must make us gods and devils yourself when the only power that exists is inside ourselves?
How could you believe in these old fantastical lies, these myths, these emblems of the supernatural?
