"It’s the business of very few people to be independent: that is a right of the strong. And whoever attempts it—even with the best right to it, but without being compelled to—shows by that action that he is probably not only strong but excessively daring. He is entering a labyrinth; he is increasing a thousand-fold the dangers that life already brings with it, not the least of which is the fact that no one’s eyes see how and where he goes astray, gets isolated, and is torn apart by some cavern-dwelling Minotaur of conscience. If such a person comes to a bad end, that happens so far away from men’s understanding that they feel nothing and have no sympathy—and he cannot go back any more! He can’t even go back to human compassion."
Friedrich Nietzsche, from Beyond Good and Evil
