Such is the mentality of the slave and heritage of the conquered. It will always be the minority of hawks and warriors who suffer the general adolescent caprice and cowardice of the generally stupid majority, and in their true sense of compassion, takes care of them nonetheless, struggling to understand why they bother. (Link via Billy Beck, who includes a stark juxtaposition involving the truly compassionate and the truly grateful.)
