Percy Bysshe Shelley
But it is only a castle. The horror is in the minds of men that make it a symbol of oppression.
Do you really believe that men invented horror? I believe it is rather that men are a horrifying invention. What existed before men? Horror. What will still exist when men are gone? Horror. Believe me, my dear Shelley; horror is the only reality which sustains our existence.
