O knihe

Excerpt from Old Times: January 1941

Slowly we learned the qualifications of a gentleman and saw that the thing was hopeless. A gentleman it seemed would take a bath (once a week on bath night) and never try to dodge it. A gentleman would not try to imitate Bishop Dumoulin or chew gum in St. George's. A gentleman, it seemed, couldn't tell a lie - not wouldn't, just couldn't. Limitations like these out such a swath through our numbers that in time we simply gave up. There was no use in it. Mind, don't mis understand me. Of course we could behave like gentlemen, - oh, certainly, -act like gentlemen. At first sight you'd mistake us for it. But we knew all the time that we weren't.

I suppose you have the same prob lem still in what we call the new school, and even in the newest parts Of it. But, remember - where we failed, you may succeed. That School was founded to make gentlemen. Stick at it. You'll get there!
