A Rat in Thy Dream, from False Weavers

“Know you not that two forces govern the world? Law and Chaos. The upholders of chaos state that in such a world as they rule, all things are possible. Opponents of chaos, those who ally with the forces of law, say that without law, nothing material is possible. Some stand apart, believing that a balance between the two is the proper state of things, but we cannot.”

– Elric of Melnibon√©, from “The Weird of the White Wolf” by Michael Moorcock
