Rozenwyn Feigenblat had told him he was an ethicist, not an artist. H agreed with her. An artist owed a duty to nothing except his own irresponsibility. It was OK for an artist to frolic in the water, no matter how bloody the waves or how high the tide rose. An ethicist had an obligation to drown.

– Howard Jacobson, J: A Novel (2014)
