Remorse Code

Quotes from "The Demon" By Hubert Selby Jr.

Tensions and nameless fears... one would know what was said. But the feelings would be remembered, as feelings always are, long after the words and the circumstances have passed beyond recall.

Memories, like ancient history, can easily disappear when their when their pertinence to today is ignored, and then they eventually reappear and become current events.

Then the morning and the goddamn feelings of guilt and remorse that churn your sweating body and dull your mind without ever really identifying themselves...

There never is a real difference between ancient history and current events. There are only variations; the theme is always the same.

...the terrible conflict as he became a battleground for the hounds of heaven and the hounds of hell...
