Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Samuel Butler

Happily common sense, though she is by nature the gentlest creature living, when she feels the knife at her throat, is apt to develop unexpected powers of resistance, and to send doctrinaires flying, even when they have bound her down and think they have her at their mercy.


Samuel Butler, Erewhon (1872), chapter 26.
