„Follow me on a journey into heaven and hell,
past angels and devils, into the realm of dreams.“

—  Valya Dudycz Lupescu American writer 1974
Context: Follow me on a journey into heaven and hell, past angels and devils, into the realm of dreams. That is where our souls go when we sleep, to meet up with our soul mate, to love without abandon, without regret. For in the morning we must return to life and all its painful illusions.

They rode with a fine unwashed arrogance, secure in their reputation as the rottenest motorcycle gang in the whole history of Christendom.
