Seite 102 - They are happy as brutes are happy, with a piece of fresh meat — with the grossest sensuality. But, Sir, the profession of soldiers and sailors has the dignity of danger. Mankind reverence those who have got over fear, which is so general a weakness.

Then, Sir, Garrick did not find, but made his way to the tables, the levees, and almost the bed-chambers of the great.
