Soon my own angerwas explained and done with; but curiosity remained.
For when it came toanalysing the impression left by these books there was always an elementof heat.
In my little street, however, domesticity prevailed.
First there are nine months before the baby is born. Nobody in their senses could fail to detect thedominance of the professor. I should need claws ofsteel and beak of brass even to penetrate the husk. I gave the waiter a ten-shilling note and hewent to bring me change. And how can we generatethis imponderable quality, which is yet so invaluable, most quickly?
First there are nine months before the baby is born. It calls forgigantic courage and strength. A filmactress had been lowered from a peak in California and hung suspended inmid-air. The professor was nothing nowbut a faggot burning on the top of Hampstead Heath. His little grunts of satisfactionindicated so much.
More than anything, perhaps, creatures ofillusion as we are, it calls for confidence in oneself.
To judge from its odd effects, it wasanger disguised and complex, not anger simple and open. So thinking, so speculating I found my way back to my house by theriver. Could itbe his wife, I asked, looking at my picture? Take it away and man may die, like the drug fiend deprived ofhis cocaine.
Dinner was being served in the great dining-hall.
No force in the world can take from me myfive hundred pounds. How can we raise a fund to pay for offices? These are unpleasantinstincts to harbour, I reflected. Nobody seemed stirring in the streetsof Oxbridge.
It must indeed be one of thechief sources of his power. People who have seen them running wild in Russia say that the sight isnot a pleasant one. Logically they will take part in all the activitiesand exertions that were once denied them. Even the names of the books gave me food for thought.
Letus look up what John Stuart Mill said on the subject. Cant we find a pretty girl to sit in the front row?
