…all men–kings & serfs alike–are slaves to other men & to circumstance–save alone, the pilot–who comes at no man’s back and call, obeys no man’s orders & scorns all men’s suggestions. The king would do this thing, & would do that: but a cramped treasury overmasters him in the one case & a seditious people in the other. The Senator must hob-nob with canaille whom he despises, & banker, priest & statesman trim their actions by the breeze of the world’s will & the world’s opinion. It is a strange study,–a singular phenomenon, if you please, that the only real, independent & genuine gentlemen in the world go quietly up and down the … river, asking no homage of any one, seeking no popularity, no notoriety, & not caring a damn whether school keeps or not.
– Mark Twain
