When I reflected on his crimes and malice, my hatred and revenge burst all bounds of moderation.

I determined to go without a guide, for I was well-acquainted with the path, and the presence of another would destroy the solitary grandeur of the scene.

If you will comply with my conditions, I will leave them and you at peace; but if you refuse, I will glut the maw of death, until it be satiated with the blood of your remaining friends.

Remember, that I am thy monster; I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel, whom thou drivest from joy for no misdeed.

Listen to my tale; when you have heard that, abandon or commiserate me, as you shall judge that I deserve.
