Not Involved

“You can rule me out,” I said.  “I’m not involved.  Not interested,” I repeated.  It had been an article of my creed.  The human condition being what it was, let them fight, let them love, let them murder, I would not be involved.  My fellow journalists called themselves correspondents; I preferred the title of reporter.  I wrote what I saw.  I took no action - even an opinion is a kind of action.
 - Graham Green, The Quiet American (1955)
