But the whim we have of happiness is somewhat thus. By certain valuations, and averages, of our own striking, we come upon some sort of average terrestrial lot; this we fancy belongs to us by nature, and of indefeasible rights.

A little while ago thou hadst no right to be at all.More Thomas Carlyle quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
