"It's chance, I tell you," he interrupted, "as everything is in a man's life."
There is, though I do not know how there is or why there is, a sense of infinite peace and protection in the glittering hosts of heaven. There it must be, I think, in the vast and eternal laws of matter, and not in the daily cares and sins and troubles of men, that whatever is more than animal within us must find its solace and its hope. -- Ch. 22
To this day I have never troubled about the ethics of the matter. The study of Nature makes a man at last as remorseless as Nature.
-- Ch. 14
