Excerpt from The Lectures of a Certain Professor
It is said, noscitur a sociis - and I believe it might be said of any one with at least equal truth - you may know him by his day-dreams. In the application of the former proverb, it is by no means necessary that the subject of your speculations have companions at all. If he have none, we may decide infallibly, unless the circumstances be very peculiar, what manner of man he is. So in the latter case too. If your man has never had a day-dream, I could read you his character in a twinkling. L, for one, would have as little to do with Him as I could help. I should have an unpleasant pre sentiment of corners on his mind, against which Iwould ear to knock either my head or my heart. If I could, I would appoint him bosom friend to my direst enemy - I would set him to criticise a rival professor.
