Mother! Tell your children not to walk my way! Tell your children not to hear my words, what they mean, what they say! Mother!
The headline quote is from Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley‘s original of course, but I can well imagine that applying to Anton Chigurh, the psychopathic hitman of No Country For Old Men.
