Oh my goodness…and so came to mind a passage from "The Man Who Laughs" by Victor Hugo:

They had intended to drive him to desperation; they had succeeded in driving him into enchantment. They had affianced him beforehand to a healing wound. They had predestined him for consolation by an affliction. The pincers of the executioner had softly changed into the delicately molded hand of a girl. Gwynplaine was horrible; artificially horrible--made horrible by the hand of man…
