Responsibility of Possession

Mr Eagle, you are not a realized man. That is your weakness and also your power. Before one realizes oneself one has the optimism of ignorance. It can be the saving of one’s life. Once realized, one faces the terror of knowing what it is you are and have done… the realized man can have a profound effect on the world around him, he must bear the consequences and guilt of that as well…

—Salman Rushdie, Grimus
