Self Deception

From Darkness at Noon, book I’m reading:


“And Rubashov wished with his whole heart, old and tried as he felt, that it should end well. But he knew for what task he had been sent here, and there was only one revolutionary virtue which he had not learned, the virtue of self-deception.”

Great line
