Sherwood Anderson, WINESBURG, OHIO, New York, The Modern Library, 2002 [1919]

The old writer, like all of the people in the world, had got, during his long life, a great many notions in his head. He had once been quite handsome and a number of women had benn in love with him. And then, of course, he had known people, many people, known them in a peculiarly intimate way that was different from the way you and I know people. At least that is what the writer thought and the thought pleased him. Why quarrel with an old man concerning his thoughts?
(p. 4)
