Apontamentos fugazes 105

Independentemente da opinião, algo para o Hitler pensar

«Neither was their being Jews a mishap or a misfortune or an achievement to be “proud” of. What they were was what they couldn’t get rid of – what they couldn’t even begin to want to get rid of. Their being Jews issued from their being themselves, as did their being American. It was as it was, in the nature of things, as fundamental as having arteries and veins, and they never manifested the slightest desire to change it or deny it, regardless of the consequences.»

Philip Roth, «The plot against America», Vintage, pp. 220
