'Moblis in Mobili'
"I am not what you call a civilised man! I have done with society entirely, for reasons which I alone have the right of appreciating. I do not, therefore, obey its laws, and I desire you never to allude to them before me again!"- Captain Nemo
Nemo! defeated patriot and mad visionary. When his cause was lost and his family dead, he traded the bitter ashes of defeat for the harsh, acrid tang of Mad Science! A fair swap in my humble opinion.
