MARLIN: "Next week, brand-new kittens and a baby giraffe you can feed with a real bottle!"

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
