  • There's no reason to trade insults. We have our way of life and they have theirs. I wouldn't live as they do, but disrespect seems pointless. I'm sure there are good people among them.

    People   Disrespect   Way  
    Alexei Panshin (1982). “Rite of passage”, Pocket

    Alexei Panshin, Leo Dillon, Diane Dillon (1968). “Rite of passage”
