If you were to cast me off now - but you will not - you would never be rid of me. No one should come between us. I would pursue you to the death." ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens "Circumstances may accumulate so strongly even against an innocent man, that directed, sharpened, and pointed, they may slay him." ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens "The cramped monotony of my existence grinds me away by the grain. " ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens "You are always training yourself to be, mind and body, as clear as crystal, and you always are, and never change; whereas I am a muddy, solitary, moping weed." ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens "How beautiful you are! You are more beautiful in anger than in repose. I don't ask you for your love; give me yourself and your hatred; give me yourself and that pretty rage; give me yourself and that enchanting scorn; it will be enough for me." ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens "I only ask to be free.
