|Book Quote Saturday!|
Today I am featuring a quote from the book I am currently reading, Post-Mortem by Patricia Cornwell, for Book Quote Saturday. I love her books but I have not read one in a while so I decided to change that this week (I am not sure why this had to be the week, but this is the week I chose).
The quote goes like this:
“It has been conjectured that at least one percent of the population is psychopathic. Genetically, these individuals are fearless; they are people users and supreme manipulators. On the right side they are terrific spies, war heroes, five-star generals, corporate billionaires and James Bonds. On the wrong side they are strikingly evil: the Nero’s, the Hitler’s, the Richard Specks, the Ted Bundy’s, antisocial but clinically sane people who commit atrocities for which they feel no remorse and assume no blame.”
At first one percent does not sound like a lot, but when one takes into account how many people there are in the world then this can seem a bit scary. I wonder how many of us have crossed the path of one of the people who make up this one percent of the population who is psychopathic.
Do you have any quotes you would like to share? Leave then in a comment for me or leave me a link to them if you have them on your blog.
