Quote #10

[John:] I pushed the curtains open, and there was Norton holding a large white pig, which he brought down suddenly on a table edge, knocking its head off. He looked inside and then threw it against the wall where it blasted to pieces. Several other broken pigs were laying all over the floor, and the only thing I could think of at that moment was the proud and happy look on Mr. Pignati's face when he had shown us the pigs that first day. (13)

This painful scene reveals Norton at his very worst: rapaciously greedy and unable to appreciate the value of the possessions of other people.
