"Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to lies, because I am not worth the dust off the feet of them that hang! How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul; leave me my name!"- Arthur Miller, The Crucible

“And then, do you know, Monsieur Marius, I believe I was a little in love with you.” She essayed to smile again and expired. - Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

"The awareness of having well spent the other hours is an excellent sauce at table." - Victor Hugo, Hunchback of Notre Dame

People believe, thought Shadow. It’s what people do. They believe. And then they will not take responsibility for their beliefs; they conjure things, and do not trust the conjurations. People populate the darkness; with ghosts, with gods, with electrons, with tales. People imagine, and people believe: and it is that belief, that rock-solid belief that makes things happen. - Neil Gaiman, American Gods

It is no ordinary skeleton- Gaston Leroux, Le Fantôme de l'Opéra (the most simple quote, and yet,I adore it)

"Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living! You said I killed you--haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe--I know that ghosts have wandered on earth. Be with me always--take any form--drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!" - Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights (my favourite book)

As for Emma, she did not ask herself whether she loved him. Love, she thought, must come suddenly, with great outbursts and lightnings,—a hurricane of the skies, which sweeps down on life, upsets everything, uproots the will like a leaf and carries away the heart as in an abyss. She did not know that on the terrace of houses the rain makes lakes when the pipes are choked, and she would thus have remained safe in her ignorance when she suddenly discovered a rent in the wall. - Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

And I knew that in spite of all the roses and kisses and restaurant dinners a man showered on a woman before he married her, what he secretly wanted when the wedding service ended was for her to flatten out underneath his feet... Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Civil Eyes? reviews
my first time doing anything like this. I just took headlines and statements from newspaper articles and tied them together to make a point... collage with words maybe? Also, the title is a pun on the fact that people think the world is "civilized".
