Quote by Charles Dickens
To have all those noble Romans alive before me, and walking in and out for my entertainment, instead of being the stern taskmasters they had been at school, was a most novel and delightful effect.
This quote highlights the speaker's joyful and refreshing experience of seeing the noble Romans, who were once strict instructors at school, as lively and enjoyable companions. It signifies a stark contrast from the past, where they were viewed as strict authority figures. The speaker feels a sense of novelty and delight in this transformation and appreciates the newfound pleasure of their presence as a form of entertainment.
What is termed Sin is an essential element of progress. Without it the world would stagnate, or grow old, or become colorless. By its curiosity Sin increases the experience of the race. Through its intensified assertion of individualism it saves us from monotony of type. In its rejection of the current notions about morality, it is one with the higher ethics.
