Is it cruel not to want self-pity? And not to expect pity from others?
I stand and fall by my own merits and works, and that's it. If that's
very hard for some people to comprehend, and therefore they run
to stupid words like cruel, well then that's the way it is. I take
no prisoners, and I don't expect to be let off lightly either...
