"Their keen eyes continually searched the surrounding landscape; nothing that was within their field of vision escaped notice. And they saw nothing suspicious! It seemed as if they stood in the center of a large, level plain in which there was no life. But they had been warned through their sense of hearing and, knowing Africa, had no thought of disregarding that warning. Men who do - die." - "Fire", L. Patrick Greeene
"... I could not think of that old figure as a [native], but as the keeper of some ancient mystery which a rude hand had outraged. ... He seemed to feel, and he made me feel it too, that a crime had been committed against the law of nature, and that it was nature, not man, that would avenge it." - "The Green Wildebeest", John Buchan
