    I have lived in both worlds. And I think I prefer, to the indifferent, haphazard, money- mad hurry of the Outside World, that of my world; that sympathy and understanding grown shadowy since I have been away from it so long, still is more real to me than the world I am in now. Not only the spangles and the gay trappings made it colorful; there was an inner color that warmed the soul. And that I miss.
    —Josephine Demott Robinson (1865–1948)

    The Law is the true embodiment
    Of everything that’s excellent.

    And I, my Lords, embody the Law.
    —Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
