But I, who have been buried all these years in my little corner up north, almost without ever seeing a stranger who might bring new ideas with him-well, in my case it has just the same effect as if I had been transported into the middle of a crowded city.

...I have lived for so long shut out of it all, that it is a necessity of life to me to mix with young, eager, ambitious men, men of liberal and active minds; and that describes every one of those fellows who are enjoying their supper in there.

...Yes, at the time we were obliged to climb down a peg or two, it is quite true-because there was a danger of the whole project of the Baths coming to nothing if they failed us.

...And in this way the ring will be broken up, you see, and then in every issue of the paper we will enlighten the public on the Mayors incapability on one point and another, and make it clear that all the positions of trust in the town, the whole control of municipal affairs, ought to be put in the hands of the Liberals.

...Such men stand, as it were, at the outposts, so far ahead that the compact majority has not yet been able to come up with them; and there they are fighting for truths that are too newly-born into the world of consciousness to have any considerable number of people on their side as yet.
