“We have tried to kill our night-soul, our deeper self… We have trampled on our own dark natures and we have added to our own unrealities and made ourselves less than human. So that that dark side of ourselves, our shadowy twin, has to murder or be murdered. If only we could make friends with our inner selves, come to terms with our own darkness, then there would be no trouble from without”

Anaïs Nin, “A Woman Speaks”
