Photo Credit: Jonatan Pie

A man who loses his privacy loses everything. And a man who gives it up of his own free will is a monster.

Having a public, keeping a public in mind, means living in lies. Sabina despised literature in which people give away all kinds of intimate secrets about themselves and their friends. A man who loses his privacy loses everything, Sabina thought. And a man who gives it up of his own free will is a monster.
