      The real damage is done by those millions who want to 'survive.' The
      honest men who just want to be left in peace.

      Those who don't want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than
      themselves.

      Those with no sides and no causes.

      Those who won't take measure of their own strength, for fear of
      antagonizing their own weakness.

      Those who don't like to make waves or enemies.

      Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature.

      Those who live small, mate small, die small.

      It's the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you'll keep
      it under control. If you don't make any noise, the bogeyman won't find
      you. But it's all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll
      up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe.

      Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow
      streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle
      burns itself out just like a flaming torch does.

      I choose my own way to burn.
