    I quote another man’s saying; unluckily, that other withdraws himself in the same way, and quotes me.

    I’m down here all alone, but as happy as a king—at least, as happy as some kings—at any rate, I should think I’m about as happy as King Charles the First when he was in prison.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    As we approached the log house,... the projecting ends of the logs lapping over each other irregularly several feet at the corners gave it a very rich and picturesque look, far removed from the meanness of weather-boards. It was a very spacious, low building, about eighty feet long, with many large apartments ... a style of architecture not described by Vitruvius, I suspect, though possibly hinted at in the biography of Orpheus.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
