What more stirring than the contrasts of society? the mixture of slang and fashionable language? the escapes, the battles, the murders?
第 151 頁 - Ah, sir - a distinct universe walks about under your hat and under mine — all things in nature are different to each - the woman we look at has not the same features, the dish we eat from has not the same taste to the one and the other - you and I are but a pair of infinite isolations, with some fellow-islands a little more or less near to us.
