Fantastic Measureless quotations

Whenever we encounter the Infinite in man, however imperfectly understood, we treat it with respect.

I am a Jane Austenite, and therefore slightly imbecile about Jane Austen.

My fatuous expression, and airs of personal immunity-how ill they sit on the face, say,of a Stevensonian! But Jane Austen is so different. She is my favourite author!
