James Branch Cabell Quote
I am Manuel, and I follow after my own thinking and my own desire. Of course it is very fine of me to be renouncing so much wealth and power for the sake of my wonderful dear Niafer: but she is worth the sacrifice, and, besides, she is witnessing all this magnanimity, and cannot well fail to be impressed.
Miramon, in Ch. IV : In the Doubtful Palace - Figures of Earth (1921)
