    The number of chapters is never entirely arbitrary.

    Billyboy holding her by one rooker and his number-one, Leo, holding the other. They'd probably just been doing the dirty slovo part of the act before getting down to a malenky bit of ultra-violence.

    They viddied us just as we viddied them, and there was like a very quit kind of watching each other now. This would be real, this would be proper, this would be the nozh, the oozy, the britva, not just fisties and boots.

    A man who cannot choose ceases to be a man.

    Does God want woodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses the bad perhaps in some ways better than a man who has the good imposed upon him?

    Goodness is something chosen. When a man cannot choose he ceases to be a man."
    Roman Eseninhas quoted9 months ago
    "Choice," rumbled a rich deep goloss. I viddied it belonged to the prison charlie. "He has no real choice, has he? Self-interest, fear of physical pain, drove him to that grotesque act of self-abasement. Its insincerity was clearly to be seen. He ceases to be a wrongdoer. He ceases also to be a creature capable of moral choice."
    Roman Eseninhas quoted9 months ago
    I must confess I share those doubts. The question is whether such a technique can really make a man good. Goodness comes from within, 6655321. Goodness is something chosen. When a man cannot choose he ceases to be a man
    Roman Eseninhas quoted9 months ago
    They have turned you into something other than a human being. You have no power of choice any longer. You are committed to socially acceptable acts, a little machine capable only of good. And I see that clearly – that business about the marginal conditionings. Music and the sexual act, literature and art, all must be a source now not of pleasure but of pain
    Roman Eseninhas quoted9 months ago
    I needed help and kindness now. Those horrible grahzny bratchnies in that terrible white mesto had done that to me, making me need help and kindness now and forcing me to want to give help and kindness myself, if anybody would take it.
    Roman Eseninhas quoted9 months ago
    The thrill of theft, or violence, the urge to live easy – is it worth it when we have undeniable proof, yes yes, incontrovertible evidence that hell exists?

    I just to be like a clockwork orange?" I didn't know what made me use those slovos, brothers, which just came like without asking into my gulliver

    what, brothers, I had to escape into sleep from then was the horrible and wrong feeling that it was better to get the hit than give it. If that veck had stayed I might even have like presented the other cheek.

    Then there were two like queer ones who both took a fancy to me, and one of them made a jump onto my back, and I had a real nasty bit of dratsing with him and the von on him

    It is not the novelist’s job to preach; it is his duty to show.

    It is as inhuman to be totally good as it is to be totally evil.
    b5473641953has quotedlast year
    Their is, in fact, not much point in writing a novel unless you can show the possibility of moral transformation, or an increase in wisdom

    Let me put the situation baldly

    Unfortunately there is so much original sin in us all that we find evil rather attractive.
