"I don´t wish to enter the human world under false pretences. I´m relieved to have discovered my identity after being confused about it for so many years. Why should people be afraid if I confide in them? Yes people will always be afraid and jealous of those who finally establish their identity; it leads them to consider their own, to seclude it, cosset it, for fear it may be borrowed or interfered with, and when they are in the act of protecting it they suffer the shock of realising that their identity is nothing, it is something they dreamed and never knew; and then begins the painstaking search - what shall they choose - beast? another human being? insect? bird?"
