Danger--if you meet it promptly and without flinching--you will reduce by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
      - [Danger]

The destiny of mankind is not decided by material computation. When great causes are on the move in the world . . . we learn that we are spirits, not animals, and that something is going on in space and time, and beyond space and time, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.
      - [Duty]

The maxim of the British people is "Business as usual."
      - [Great Britain]

My name is Hugh Paret. I was a corporation lawyer, but by no means a typical one, the choice of my profession being merely incidental, and due, as will be seen, to the accident of environment. The book I am about to write might aptly be called the Autobiography of a Romanicist.
      - A Far Country (book 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

Honora Leffingwell is the original name of our heroine.
      - A Modern Chronicle [Books (First Lines)]

Lionel Carvel, Esq., of Carvel Hall, in the county of Queen Anne, was no inconsiderable man in his Lordship's province of Maryland, and indeed he was not unknown in the colonial capitals from Williamsburg to Boston.
      - Richard Carvel [Books (First Lines)]

Faithfully to relate how Eliphalet Hopper came to St. Louis is to betray no secret.

I was born under the Blue Ridge, and under that side which is blue in the evening light, in a wild land of game and forest and rushing waters.
      - The Crossing [Books (First Lines)]

With few exceptions, the incidents recorded in these pages take place in one of the largest cities of the United States of America, and of that portion called the Middle West,--a city once conservative and provincial, and rather proud of these qualities; but now outgrown them, and linked by lightning limited trains to other teeming centers of the modern world: a city overtaken, in recent years, by the plague which has swept our country from the Atlantic to the Pacific--Prosperity.
      - The Inside of the Cup
        [Books (First Lines)]
