Hermit Magister, Part 6

"[I]f you are living in a shit heap, eventually you'll probably come to the conclusion -- at least subconsciously -- that you are shit. If you are living in a rattrap, you'll think you're probably a rat, and you'll probably modify your behavior accordingly. [...] Now if you're living in a temple you'll perhaps get the idea after a while that you're some sort of [laughter] of divinity, or high priest or something, which might be delusional, but it feels a lot better than thinking you're a rat."
-- Alan Moore in "The Dark Side of the Moore," as quoted by Omar Martini, pg. 112, in Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman, edited by smoky man, Gary Spencer Millidge and Omar Martini, Abiogenesis Press, Leigh-on-Sea, England, 2003.
