However the more I think about it, stare it down, the more it marinates in my soul over the hours, days, and weeks, the more flaws I start to find in it; and finally, the more I'm pressed to continue enhancing it.

To perfect eyes, I imagine that great is not really that great; rather, humility is ultimately a human being's true greatness."

No one's house cost more than two or three year's salary, and I doubt the spread in annual wages (except for the osteopath) exceeded more than five thousand dollars. And other than the doctor (who made house calls), the store managers, the minister, the salesman, and the banker, everyone belonged to a union.

The Plumers will try to prevent him from making it. Wells and Shaw and the serious sixpenny weeklies will sit on its head."
