Any man is all men

»Whatever one man does, it is as if all men did it. For that reason it is not unfair that one disobedience in a garden should contaminate all humanity; for that reason it is not injust that the crucifixion of a single Jew should be sufficient to save it. Perhaps Schopenhauer was right: I am all other men, any man is all men, Shakespeare is in some manner the miserable John Vincent Moon«.

Borges, Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius, in Labyrinths, edited by Donal A. Yates and James E. Irby, 1964.
