A person cannot choose the time and the nation in which he is born – but what really matters is something else

A person cannot choose the time in which he is born or lives; it is not up to him, who his parents are, or the nation he will be born into, but what he is responsible for is how he will act in that given time: will he be human or inhuman, no matter his nationality nor parents.

However, a time is coming when people will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will mock him saying: “You are mad, you are not like us”.
