“One part of being a man…”

“…one part of being a man is realizing that no one escapes doing an evil deed without suffering for it. Any advantage gained by selfish means, any convenience taken, any private putting off of a thing, any insincerity, no matter how small or quick in passing, is paid for.

Rarely is this a dramatic thing, my son. Often it is hardly noticeable. Yet always payment is made, and it is made through pain within, it is made through unhappiness. O Hawk, a true man learns very early in his life that such two-hearted ways are not worth the price he pays for them. A true man can never be happy when doing evil.”
