Don Berry

“All his life had been based on this hostile kind of strength; a strength  that viewed the world as a thing to master, to overcome, to fight. As a  problem that might be solved by destroying. It seemed faintly  ridiculous to him now; and he found it difficult to remember that a life  could be based on such fear. There could, he thought, be no impulse to  destruction that was not rooted in some terrible fear, and he was no  longer afraid.”

– Don Berry, from Trask
