"it's the whole thing," he asserted. "it's the one dividing line between
good and evil. i've never met a man who led a rotten life and didn't
have a weak will."

"they're usually insane. if not, they're weak. there is no such thing
as a strong, sane criminal."
"burne, i disagree with you altogether; how about the superman?"

"he's evil, i think, yet he's strong and sane."
