Pain is a powerful force. It can make a grown man howl like an animal in the middle of the night, a child cry until she chokes to death on her own tears, the best of friends betray each other as their eyes are gouged from their sockets, a broken heart leaps to freedom, another slashes the object of rejection while still another eats his own dog to sate the gnaw of starvation.
Agony -- Egon Schiele, 1912
