“You remind me of a child-friend who once wrote to tell me about her sister being married. Now I will tell you all about Bessies wedding. Then came a long account of bridesmaids, and breakfast, and everything else, except the name of the bride-groom! That of course didnt matter: the great thing was to get married somehow.”

“How false is the conception, how frantic the pursuit, of that treacherous phantom which men call Liberty: most treacherous, indeed, of all phantoms; for the feeblest ray of reason might surely show us, that not only its attainment, but its being, was impossible.

—John Ruskin (18191900)
