Journeyman (Part 3)

And this is what it boils down to, that fuliginous residue of your time and power: you need to get them when they're young, for when they are old and mindless, you will never defeat them.

So I sat and watched, and I saw a grievous evil — that when people decided children should be protected from fear and violence, they forgot about nature being fearsome and violent, and that reflexes save children where reason will not serve.

Then it was that I purposed in my heart, "You shall see fear in a grain of dust."
