What Is the Reason?

To live in ignorance, and then wake up:

“Clenching his fists and scowling with disgust, he (Nikolay) wondered how he, the son of a village priest, brought up in a clerical school, a plain, straightforward man, a surgeon by profession — how could he have let himself be enslaved, have sunk into such shameful bondage to this weak, worthless, mercenary, low creature.” 
“The Helpmate” by Anton Chekhov
