An Honest Man

 

It was not that I could not become spiteful. I did not know how to become anything; neither spiteful nor kind. neither a rascal nor an honest man, neither a hero nor an insect.  Now, I am living out my life in my corner, taunting myself with the spiteful and useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot become anything seriously, and it is only the fool who becomes anything.

"If he's honest, he'll steal; if he's human, he'll murder; if he's faithful, he'll deceive. Being at a loss to resolve these questions, I am resolved to leave them without any resolution." I have so much to say to you that I am afraid I shall tell you nothing."
