«The Senate was and is hardly worth mentioning. It was and is a clubhouse with commodious armchairs and a fine library. Unanimity had always hovered on those gatherings of temperate gentlemen and slumbering emeriti; and no effort was required to perfect into a flawless conformism an inclination that was inborn in their society.»
