The whites have carried to these (colonial) people the worst that they could carry: the plagues of the world: materialism, fanaticism, alcoholism, and syphilis. Moreover, since what these people possessed on their own was superior to anything we could give them, they have remained themselves... The sole result of the activity of the colonizers is: they have everywhere aroused hatred.
I'm a very smart guy. I haven't a feeling or a scruple in the world. All i have the itch for is money. I am so money greedy that for twenty-five bucks a day and expenses, mostly gasoline and whisky, i do my thinking myself, what there is of it; i risk my whole future, the hatred of the cops . . . I dodge bullets and eat saps, and say thank you very much, if you have any more trouble, i hope you'll think of me, i'll just leave one of my cards in case anything comes up.
