“‘I know that the majority of Englishmen are bound by the indefinite … a line is a line in its minutest particulars, straight or crooked. It is itself not intermeasurable by anything else … but since the French Revolution’—since the reign of reason began, that is—’Englishmen are all intermeasurable with one another, certainly a happy state of agreement in which I do not agree.'” [via]
