Us and Them

V.S. Naipaul (1932-2018), An Area of Darkness (1964; rpt. New York: Vintage Books, 2002), p. 25:
We ate certain food, performed certain ceremonies and had certain taboos; we expected others to have their own. We did not wish to share theirs; we did not expect them to share ours. They were what they were; we were what we were.
