“’nobody likes to think hes being used,’ said rumfoord. ‘he’ll put off admitting it to himself until the last possible instant.’ he smiled crookedly. ‘it may surprise you to learn that i take a certain pride, no matter how foolishly mistaken that pride may be, in making my own decisions for my own reasons.’”

– winston niles rumfoord
