    humans are essentially monsters, can't really agree with you there.  I think I'm more likely to note that human beings have the capacity to become monsters, just as they also have the capacity to become saints.  And true to that potential, they do both, and all the points in between.

    One of the beauties of the human potential, it seems to me: nothing predetermined, but a very wide breadth of possibilities, all of which can be and are realized at any given moment.

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
