"The expelled are uprooted people who attempt to uproot everything around themselves, to establish roots. They do it spontaneously, simply because they where expelled. It is an almost vegetable process. Perhaps one can observe it when one tries to transplant tree. It can happen that the expelled becomes conscious of the vegetable, almost vegetative aspect of his exile; that he discovers that the human being is not a tree; and that perhaps human dignity consists in not having roots – that a man first becomes a human being when he hacks off the vegetable roots that bind him."
