"It would seem we are to suffer an apocalypse of cockatoos. Morose, barbaric children playing joylessly with their unfathomable toys. Where comes this dullness in your eyes? How has your century numbed you so? Your days were born in blood and fires whereof in you I see not the meanest spark! Your past is pain and iron! Know yourselves!"

-Sir William Gull

"From Hell" by Alan Moore
