If this is the best of possible worlds, what then are the others?
― Voltaire, Candide
You hem me in -- behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

who can't throw away their humanity
who stay idle in growth
who won't dirty their hands
those are the most terrifying of monsters
