    The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats.

But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.”

    Is this what you ask of us, so that you can get your empty pound of flesh from the most wealthy?
