Red Dragon

Author:Thomas Harris

One can only see what one observes, and one observes only things which are already in the mind.

    One can only see what one observes, and one observes only things which are already in the mind.

    Alphonse Bertillon

    …For Mercy has a human heart,

    Pity a human face,

    And Love, the human form divine,

    And Peace, the human dress.

    William Blake, Songs of Innocence (The Divine Image)

    Cruelty has a Human Heart,

    And Jealousy a Human Face,

    Terror the Human Form Divine,

    And Secrecy the Human Dress.

    The Human Dress is forged Iron,

    The Human Form a fiery Forge,

    The Human Face a Furnace seal’d,

    The Human Heart its hungry Gorge.

    William Blake, Songs of Experience (A Divine Image)
