Abstract

What chance is there of the success of real passion … [given] the unravelling of the web of human life into its various threads of meanness, spite, cowardice, want of feeling, and want of understanding … and seeing custom prevail over all excellence. (William Hazlitt 2005: 119; orig. 1826)
