The honest man must be a perpetual renegade, the life of an honest man a perpetual infidelity. For the man who wishes to remain faithful must take himself perpetually unfaithful to all the continual, successive, indefatigable, renascent errors.

A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
