I never desired to please the rabble. What pleased them, I did not learn; and what I knew was far removed from their understanding.
If the rabble were lopped off at one end and the aristocrats at the other, all would be well with the country.
I was lucky enough to see with my own eyes the recent stock-market crash, where they lost several million dollars, a rabble of dead money that went sliding off into the sea.
