“I do not wish any reward but to know I have done the right thing.”

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 39. Tom Sawyer in fake letter posing as a gang of robbers intent on stealing Jim from the Phelps farm. It is ironic, because Tom has no intention of doing the right thing. He does the opposite by making Jim’s life rougher and not simply unlocking the shed door to free Jim.
