Whittaker Chambers

“I am a man who is very reluctantly and grudgingly, step by step, destroying myself so that this nation and the faith by which it lives  may continue to exist.  It is not a role I would have chosen for myself.  I am merely doing the job as I see it.  Someone, some way, had to come along and lift off the lid.  Someone had to say ‘This is what is inside.’  The man who lifts the lid has to testify just as much against himself  as against everyone else.  I just seem to be able to stand the ordeal.”

Whittaker Chambers
