Reading Michael Ondaatje

Reading Michael Ondaatje this summer. From The Cat's Table, p. 75:

That was a small lesson I learned on the journey. What is interesting and important happens mostly in secret, in places where there is no power. Nothing much of lasting value ever happens at the head table, held together by a familiar rhetoric. Those who already have power continue to glide along the familiar rut they have made for themselves.
