Quotes for 2020#32

An on going series of a quote a day from those most worthy of individuals, writers…  Disclaimer not all quotes are meant to inspire… Not all comments I make upon them are entirely honest either, occasionally Hannibal writes them…

Today its a quote from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, specifically a quote from the prince of darkness, the light bringer, he who was Samuel, and whom the Rolling Stones would beg of you some sympathy… Lucifer…

I’ve always felt a little affinity for this opinion voiced by Gaiman’s and later Mike Carey’s Lucifer. The devil I think seldom makes humanity do anything.

This quote oddly enough was partly the original inspiration for a shorts story I wrote entitled, oddly enough,  ‘The devil made me do it’. I am rather fond of how that story turned out so it was one of the bonus stories I included in my novella‘A Scar of Avarice’ though the protagonist of that particular story take a somewhat different view to the devils guilt in such things…
