Sullen Dignity

From Jack Gance by Ward Just (1989). The protagonist’s father, a business owner, has just been convicted and sentenced for tax evasion. The father refused to defend himself.

My father’s sullen dignity infuriated the court, but I found it admirable. At the end, he submitted to the rules, but he did not surrender his personality, his own view of things.
