Here, my dear chap, is the beginning of a feather-bed existence—yes, and more than that! Here you will get drawn in; here is the end of the world, an anchorage, a peaceful haven, the central point of the earth, the three fishes on which the world is based, the essence of pancakes, of rich pies, of the evening samovar, of peaceful sighs and warm jackets and warm stoves to lie on—just as if you were dead and yet still alive—all the advantages of both states at one and the same time!
