Since no normal humble man can help but feel magnificent in a brand-new suit of clothes, it is not surprising that those who don a fresh suit of bright white linen every day should feel magnificent always. Nor is it surprising that a normal humble head should swell beneath a solar topee, since a topee is more a badge of authority than a hat, as is the hat of a soldier.

It is difficult to live up to one's poster? When I pass my name in large letters I blush, but at the same time instinctively raise my hat.
Die ganzen Zahlen hat der liebe Gott gemacht, alles andere ist Menschenwerk.Leopold Kronecker
Die Welt ist eine Glocke, die einen Riß hat: sie klappert, aber klingt nicht.
