“Imagine a trembling mother with her baby in her arms, a circle of invading Turks around her. They plan a diversion: they pet the baby, laugh to make it laugh. They succeed the baby laughs. At that moment a Turk points a pistol four inches from the baby’s face. The baby laughs with glee, holds out its little hands to the pistol, and he pulls the trigger in the baby’s face and blows out its brains. Artistic, wasn’t it? By the way, Turks are particularly fond of sweet things, they say.”
-The Grand Inquisitor, The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoievsky.
