“It was not the thought that I was so unloved that froze me. I had taught myself to do without love.
It was not the thought that God was cruel that froze me. I had taught myself never to expect anything from Him.
What froze me was the fact that I had absolutely no reason to move in any direction. What had made me move through so many dead and pointless years was curiosity.
Now even that had flickered out.
How long I stood frozen there, I cannot say. If I was ever going to move again, someone else was going to have to furnish the reason for moving.
Somebody did.
A policeman watched me for a while, and then he came over to me, and he said, "You alright?"

You've been standing here a long time," he said.
I know," I said.
You waiting for somebody?" he said.
No," I said.
Better move on, don't you think?" he said.
Yes, sir," I said.
And I moved on.”

“در ادامه مقاله‌ی وست‌لیک آمده بود که کارگران برده‌سانی که ناس را به دار آویخته بودند درست نمی‌دانستند که او کی هست؛ فقط می‌دانستند شخصیت مهمی است، همین. علت دار زدن ناس همان نفس ِ دار زدن بود و بس؛ از اعدام یک شخصیت مهم احساس رضایت خاطر می‌کردند .”
