Heartwarming / The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
"Miss Murray, though I am a beast, do not think that I am stupid. I know that I am hideous and hateful. I am not loved, nor ever hope to be.

I would be grateful if you left me now. Go quickly, woman. Go before I break your jaw."
"Oh, it's thundering so fast... so very fast. I was right, then, about this world. Always I knew that Heaven would be the cruelest of places. Farewell, my perfect Mina."
