"There are times when it is a pleasure to be pulled
by the hair. That's how warped a human mind can get.
You are pulled by the hair up hill and down dale, and
if someone asks what's going on, you answer in sheer
ecstasy, I'm being pulled by the hair! And if they ask,
But can't I help you, set you free? you answer, No.
And if they ask, But can you stand it? you answer,
Yes, I can stand it"
- Knut Hamsun, Pan
