“They said you were hard and cold and unfeeling.”
“But it’s true...I am, in the sense they mean—only have they ever told you in just what sense they mean it?"
"What did they mean about you?”
“Whenever anyone accuses some person of being ‘unfeeling,’ he means that that person is just. He means that that person has no causeless emotions and will not grant him a feeling which he does not deserve. He means that 'to feel’ is to go against reason, against moral values, against reality.”
