Allegiance

Today´s Quotation is from Elizabeth George: Careless in Red.

“Daidre had spent part of her early morning thinking about allegiance. She knew that some people firmly believed in the principle of every man for himself. Her problem had always been an inability to adhere to that principle. She considered the idea of what she owed other people versus what she owed herself. She thought about duty but also thought about vengeance. She considered the ways in which ‘getting even’ was merely a questionable euphemism for ‘learning nothing’. She tried to decide whether there actually were life lessons to be learned or whether life was all the mindless trouble through the years without rhyme or reason.”
