"If only I can make people feel that this man, this spirit of evil, is an unhappy human being. Sick with unhappiness, the unhappiness of Lucifer, the angel cast out of heaven. If I can do it as I see it, other unhappy people will feel they’re lucky in comparison. And even happy people will feel a little sympathy for him."
