Quote from the Witcher books

Post by ucnt on Sun Sep 17, 2017 5:13 pm

So this is just a random thing that probably doesn't merit its own thread, but this forum isn't very active so I thought, why not.

In the Witcher books, in the beginning of chapters there are "quotes" from works within the fictional universe, and I found this one pretty hot:

"It is proper for a hapless one to suffer. His pain and humiliation result from the laws of nature, and to carry out the aims of nature both the existence of the suffering one is necessary, as is that who, causing him suffering, enjoy their successes. That very truth ought to stifle the pang of conscience in the heart of a tyrant or malefactor. He must not bridle himself, he ought to commit all the deeds that arise in his imagination, since it is the voice of nature which suggests them. If the secret inspirations of nature lead us to evil it is evidently essential to nature." -Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade

I just now found out that this Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade is a real historical figure! Usually the quotes at the beginnings of chapters are from fictional works from the books fantasy world, but apparently this isn't one of them. I may have to do some reading about this frenchman!
