Eighteen Times

Norman Mailer, 1948, photograph by Carl Van VechtenI don't trust a man who uses the word evil eighteen times in ten minutes. If you're half evil, nothing soothes you more than to think the person you are opposed to is totally evil.

-- Norman Mailer (31 January 1923 - 10 November 2007), American novelist, journalist, poet, and playwright, BBC Newsnight, 2 April 2002
