Excerpt from Claims and Counterclaims

What is your idea of gratitude, New-bold?"

"Gratitude, my dear Dilke, is a sentiment reluctantly entertained for a benefit grudgingly conferred."

"I am not likely to get much help from you in your present mood; but I shall ask you one more question: If a man had saved your life at the risk of his own, what would you feel that you owed him?"

"My life, evidently."

"I happen to be in earnest, Newbold."

"Really! That is a pity. But does it follow that because you are in earnest I must be?"

"It would be more civil to answer a serious question seriously."

Newbold threw back his head, and thrust out his chin till his pointed Van Dyck beard was almost horizontal. He switched at a head of goldenrod with his cane for an instant before he replied:

"Let us be serious, then, by all means."
