Everybody now seems to be talking about democracy. I don't understand this. As I think of it, democracy isn't like a Sunday suit to be brought out and worn only for parades. It's the kind of a life a decent man leads, it's something to live for and to die for.
For me that's one of the great indulgences in life - a hand-tailored suit, and a great pair of handmade shoes.

I suppose the worst insult you could sling my way is 'Oh, he's really nice, him.'
