    There are certain things—as, a spider, a ghost,
    The income-tax, gout, an umbrella for three—
    That I hate, but the thing that I hate the most
    Is a thing they call the Sea.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    —Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    I feel most at home in the United States, not because it is intrinsically a more interesting country, but because no one really belongs there any more than I do. We are all there together in its wholly excellent vacuum.
    —Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957)
