1.26



Electra, with maleficence, to Orestes:
—What scares you of the virtuoso?

—That they are perfect, but they are never whole.

—I am frightened by a world in which the most talented
     are the most damaged.

—And I am frightened by their attempt to go naked
     in their singularity.

—But I say that Deus is more frightened by the virtuoso
     than ever was any human.
