Choice | Anthony Burgess, 1962

''Alex: No. No! NO! Stop it! Stop it, please! I beg you! This is sin! This is sin! This is sin! It’s a sin, it’s a sin, it’s a sin!

Dr. Brodsky: Sin? What’s all this about sin?

Alex: That! Using Ludwig van like that! He did no harm to anyone. Beethoven just wrote music!

Dr. Branom: Are you referring to the background score?

Alex: Yes.

Dr. Branom: You’ve heard Beethoven before?

Alex: Yes!

Dr. Brodsky: So, you’re keen on music?

Alex: YES!

 Dr. Brodsky: Can’t be helped. Here’s the punishment element perhaps.''

"When a man cannot choose, he ceases to be a man."
