“My brother’s collection. He went to the farthest regions of the Earth in his quest for the purest specimen of beauty, and when he found it, he struck a pin through its heart.
He’s dead now. Cholera in the tropics. Struck down in his relentless pursuit for beauty. Perhaps it was beauty’s revenge to stop his heart when he had stopped so many. “
Miss Havisham, Great Expectations (2011)
