The Marquis de Shame

The Marquis de Sade (Donatien Alphonse-François de Sade) died on this day in 1814. He wrote:

"I never wonder to see men wicked, but I often wonder to see them not ashamed."

To read about the Marquis de Sade's death and last wishes, visit

   “Well, Augustine said that we have a mind, or a will, which is above the body, but our bodies are always keeping us from doing what our minds will us to do.”

   “Our minds are good, but our bodies are bad?”
   “That’s basically what he said.”
   “I dunno. I got a pretty dirty mind sometimes.” Robert cackled and shot a look around the room.
--  Chapter 27, The Misforgotten.
