Quotes Edit

"Remorse. That's for naughty children and priests."
Nelson Lambert
Clay Warner: Victor Hugo compared prison to church--the deprivation, the regulation, the conformity.
Emil Skoda: And you agree?
Clay Warner: Prison is the anti-church. A church lifts the human consciousness, elevating man beyond himself to a union with his God, but prison...forces him down. Flesh against concrete. It crushes him deeper into himself. Writers like Hugo paint these grand metaphors without having the slightest reality check. Sure, they heard about what goes on in prison, but they never really know. A life sentence. Think about what that means, Doctor. Every minute of every day, forever. Imagining death's a lot easier, no?


"Why would I be scared? Death is nothing more than the absence of life, and believe me, life isn't as precious a commodity as people delude themselves into believing. Life, death, it doesn't matter to me either way."
Clay Warner
