"Slowly I learnt the ways of humans: how to ruin, how to hate, how to debase, how to humiliate. And at the feet of my master I learnt the highest of human skills, the skill no other creature owns: I finally learnt how to lie."

Frankenstein (via softstatic)

This Quote interests me so much, because when I read it through to myself, I heard it quite bitter, disgusted at the qualities he’d learned and angry at the humans for having those qualities and showing them to him.

But, seeing it performed, Jonny said it as though this was an achievement, that he’d learned what seem to be the common skills of man whilst to us they’re really quite negative.

To us, it sounds like his view is skewed, but to him that is the human race.

God I love this play/book!
