    The late PrĂ©sident de Montesquieu told me that he knew how to be blind—he had been so for such a long time—but I swear that I do not know how to be deaf: I cannot get used to it, and I am as humiliated and distressed by it today as I was during the first week. No philosophy in the world can palliate deafness.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
