Det er få ting i verden så farlig som en søvngjenger.
Fra prologen til Invisible Man (1952).
There are few things in the world as dangerous as sleepwalkers.
Most of the time (although I do not choose as I once did to deny the violence of my days by ignoring it) I am not so overtly violent. I remember that I am invisible and walk softly so as not to awaken the sleeping ones. Sometimes it is best not to awaken them; there are few things in the world as dangerous as sleepwalkers. I learned in time though that it is possible to carry on a fight against them without their realizing it.
