While the world crashed to ruin about them and all the air was filled with the smoke of its burning, these low creatures gave rein to their bestiality and fought and drank and died. And after all, what did it matter? Everybody died anyway, the good and the bad, the efficients and the weaklings, those that loved to live and those that scorned to live. They passed. Everything passed. Jack LondonThe Scarlet Plague
With the coming of the Scarlet Death the world fell apart, absolutely, irretrievably. Ten thousand years of culture and civilization passed in the twinkling of an eye, 'lapsed like foam.' Jack LondonThe Scarlet Plague

Out of the mouths of babes comes the wisdom of all the ages.

Jack LondonThe Scarlet Plague

He was a ferocious man. He had been ill-made in the making. He had not been born right, and he had not been helped any by the moulding he had received at the hands of society. The hands of society are harsh, and this man was a striking sample of its handiwork. Jack LondonWhite Fang
There was about him a suggestion of lurking ferocity, as though the Wild still lingered in him and the wolf in him merely slept. Jack LondonWhite Fang
One cannot violate the promptings of one's nature without having that nature recoil upon itself. Jack LondonWhite Fang
