Murder is like that, a contaminating crime.

Murder is beastly, embarassing, and inconvenient.

George Orwell wrote somewhere that murder, the unique crime, should result only from strong emotions.

It was odd, she thought, that scientists so often weren’t religious when their work revealed a world so variously marvellous and yet so mysteriously unified and at one.
