insistence that it should be so was hard for Clifford to bear up
But Emma said No! She was ten years older than Clifford, and she felt
his marrying would be a desertion and a betrayal of what the young ones
of the family had stood for.
Clifford married Connie, nevertheless, and had his month's honeymoon
with her. It was the terrible year 1917, and they were intimate as two
people who stand together on a sinking ship. He had been virgin when he
married: and the sex part did not mean much to him. They were so close,
he and she, apart from that. And Connie exulted a little in this
intimacy which was beyond sex, and beyond a man's 'satisfaction'.

times before: hold thy toes well down and grip the stirrup hard,
more especially at the moment of meeting; bend thy body forward,
and keep thine elbow close to thy side. Bear thy lance point one
foot above thine adversary's helm until within two lengths of
meeting, and strike thou in the very middle of his shield. So,

|The third excerpt represents the future or something you must embrace, and is drawn from United States Declaration of Independence:
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute
new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing
its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect
their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments
long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;
and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed
to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing
the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce
them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw
off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
