This sort of life has its attractions


“Really, this sort of life has its attractions. I read somewhere that all a man needs to be happy is a full stomach and warmth, and I begin to think it is nearly true. No worries, no trains, no letters to answer, no collars to wear — but I wonder which of us would not jump at the chance to change it all tomorrow!”

— Alexander Macklin
