James Branch Cabell Quote
You are now a famous champion, that has crowned with victory a righteous cause for which many stalwart knights and gallant gentlemen have made the supreme sacrifice, because they knew that in the end the right must conquer. Your success thus represents the working out of a great moral principle, and to explain the practical minutiae of these august processes is not always quite respectable.
Miramon, in Ch. IV : In the Doubtful Palace - Figures of Earth (1921)
