Excerpt from Cornelius O'dowd Upon Men and Women and Other Things in General
We are, in a word, far more Slaves to ourselves than we like to acknowledge; but I am decidedly inclined to believe that, on the whole, the servitude works well. N OW the house we live in for a number of years cannot fail to exert a great inﬂuence over us. The same places impress the same trains of thought, till at last we give ourselves up to a ritual, in which the drawing-room, the dining-room, and the study are the masters, and certain inanimate objects, on which we scarcely bestow a thought, become our impulses and our directors.
