Quote of the Hour: Who Can Save You Now?

Reflecting on Lopez's mood, it struck me that the experience of living under a corrupt government and trying to stay honest yourself made people cynical and distrustful of authority, but at the same time self-sufficient and dependent on friends and family, because no one else would help you.

 - Paul Theroux, On the Plain of Snakes, p.104
