“The human race is unimportant. It is the self that must not be betrayed.”

“The human race is unimportant.  It is the self that must not be betrayed.”

“I suppose one could say that Hitler didn’t betray his self.”

“You are right.  He did not.  But millions of Germans did betray their selves.  That was the tragedy.  Not that one man had the courage to be evil.  But that millions had not the courage to be good.”

― John Fowles, The Magus
