I realized it might be possible to do such a thing, run for money, trot for wages on piece work at a bob a puff rising bit by bit to a guinea a gasp and retiring through old age at thirty-two because of lace-curtain lungs, a football heart, and legs like varicose beanstalks.

What we need is something, a definition of a human, starting from the ground up, so that the suitable moral structure that goes around it makes sense.
