Quote #5

“There are of course many men who walk in safe paths all their lives but they often seem a little apologetic, as if they think themselves not quite honorable. And there are others, quiet men, obscure, ungifted, who yet require satisfaction of some grim thing that ultimately kills them.”

– Russell Hoban, Turtle Diary. It’s really “ungifted” that makes the quote.
