"I am for no master nor moral persuasion. I am for myself. What your yearning soul, madam, might mistake for loyalty to person or Purpose is merely a firm and, aye, principled determination to accept responsibility only for myself and my own actions." - Elric of Melnibone, The Revenge of the Rose (Elric: Swords and Roses).
