person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.
A man's women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and

Henry Louis Mencken
One watches them on the seashore, all the people, and there is something
, almost wistful in them, as if they wished their lives did not add up to this scaly nullity of possession, but as if they could not escape.

It is too hideous and nauseating. Owners and owned, they are like the two sides of a ghastly disease. One feels a sort of madness come over one, as if the world had become hell. But it is only superimposed: it is only a temporary disease. It can be cleaned away.
D. H. Lawrence
