How absurd are the ambitions of life when I think that I, who am fairly happy and as keen as a razor edge, should be struggling for that which I can see has brought neither profit nor happiness to him! ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle At last, however, his conversation became unbearable--a foul young man is odious, but a foul old one is surely the most sickening thing on earth.
