Thank you, sir, he said. "You are very obliging." Nor yet did he know that ideas, no less than the living beings in whose minds they arise, must be begotten by parents not very unlike themselves, the most original still differing but slightly from the parents that have given rise to them. Life is like a fugue, everything must grow out of the subject and there must be nothing new. Nor, again, did he see how hard it is to say where one idea ends and another begins, nor yet how closely this is paralleled in the difficulty of saying where a life begins or ends, or an action or indeed anything, there being an unity in spite of infinite multitude, and an infinite multitude in spite of unity. He thought that ideas came into clever people鈥檚 heads by a kind of spontaneous germination, without parentage in the thoughts of others or the course of observation; for as yet he believed in genius, of which he well knew that he had none, if it was the fine frenzied thing he thought it was. What! exclaimed his father hastily and in visible agitation. "What is the man's name?" By what, sir? exclaimed Oliver, whom the feverish, excited air of the old man began to startle. Why do you stop me? she cried, looking at him fiercely with her distracted eyes. "What else is there for me? What other refuge? what other hope? Let me go! let me go! Cruel! cruel! cruel! Let me throw myself into the sea! Don't you understand? Oh, cruel! cruel! Cold and wicked, shameless and cruel! There is nothing else鈥攐nly that refuge left! Let me hide myself in death! let me hide鈥攈ide!" 鈥楪rown!鈥?interrupted Mrs. Larkins. 鈥業t鈥檚 you who鈥檝e grown out of all memory almost, except to those who love you. But now sit down and let鈥檚 know all about it. What brought you to take the shilling? and you never let on, not one word. You might have written to us, Hercules. We, Jonadab and me, have had you always in our thoughts, thinking you were getting to be a fine gentleman who鈥檇 have nothing to do with the likes of us.鈥? 一本道香蕉线旡码视频,在线看免费观看日本Av CHAPTER IX. 鈥淚t was a question of Saint Clothilde鈥攖hat I think was the order鈥攐r Saint Lazare. Some girls are like that.鈥? Fortinbras arranged and Martin became outwardly the perfect waiter. Of the craft itself he had much to learn, chiefly under the guidance of Bigourdin and sometimes under the shy instruction of F茅lise. Its many calls on intelligence and bodily skill surprised him. To balance a piled-up tray on one bent-back hand required the art of a juggler. He practised for days with a trayful of bricks before he trusted himself with plates and dishes. By means of this exercise his arm became muscular. He discovered that the long, grave step of the professor鈥攅specially when he bore a load of eatables鈥攄id not make for the perfect waiter鈥檚 celerity. He acquired the gentle arts of salad making and folding napkins into fantastic shapes. Never handy with his fingers, and, like most temperate young men in London lodgings, unaccustomed to the corkscrew, he found the clean prestidigitation of cork-drawing a difficult accomplishment. But he triumphed eventually in this as in all other branches of his new industry. And he liked it. It amused and interested him. It was work of which he could see the result. The tables set before the meal bore testimony to his handicraft. Never had plate been so polished, cutlery so lustrous, glass so transparent in the hundred years history of the H?tel des Grottes. And when the guests assembled it was a delight to serve them according to organised scheme and disarm criticism by demonstration of his efficiency. He rose early and went to bed late, tired as a draught-dog and slept the happy sleep of the contented human. Go after that ball this instant! shrieked Roland, stamping his foot; "or I'll make you!"
