鈥淚t鈥檚 also fatiguing from the waiter鈥檚 point of view,鈥?laughed Martin. Before Martin鈥檚 inner vision floated a blurred picture of camels and pyramids and sand and oleographic sunsets. He said, infatuated: 鈥淚 would give my soul to go to Egypt.鈥? Chapter 42 Of course he read Mr. Darwin鈥檚 books as fast as they came out and adopted evolution as an article of faith. 鈥淚t seems to me,鈥?he said once, 鈥渢hat I am like one of those caterpillars which, if they have been interrupted in making their hammock, must begin again from the beginning.
