‘The Quiet American’ – Graham Greene

'That was my first instinct - to protect him. It never occurred to me there was
a greater need to protect myself. Innocence always calls mutely for protection
when we would be so much wiser to guard ourselves against it: innocence is like
a dumb leper who has lost his bell, wandering the world, meaning no harm.'
