    1. The thought crossed my mind that I've never read, in any of these authors who derive such pleasure from describing cruelty, any description of how the face of the sadist himself looks- how their own face looks- when they are writing these passages!I couldn't see these people's face but I could see quite clearly the faces of certain students in the horrible scene at which they were gazing; and it would have been a revelation to any great pathologist to note the manner in which the frenzy of scien [...]
