Dublin A City of Wonderful Dreams Silent and Voluble Folk

  • Patricia A. McFate

Abstract

When we are asked to resume a man or a city or a philosophy in a couple of phrases our vanity is gratified at the idea that we are considered capable of such a feat, and we are thus enabled to discover in an instant a formula which will survive at least an instant. There is scarcely anything so interesting as these generalizations, and scarcely anything so untrue, for they contain inevitably a disparagement, and are based on the sound assumption that our friends do not care to hear anything praised except themselves.
