“‘My brother’s collection. He went to the furthest reaches of the earth, in his quest for the purest specimen of beauty, and when he found it, he stuck a pin through its heart. He’s dead now, cholera, in the tropics, struck down in his relentless pursuit of beauty. Perhaps it was beauty’s revenge to stop his heart like he had stopped so many others. Do you think beauty is a destroyer of men Pip?’” —Great Expectations - Charles Dickens.
