Pike was so convinced of the correctness of his diagnosis that he tried to bribe the carpenter into having his appendix removed."

"But is it safe . . . for the . . . the working of the ship," I urged, "to take such a lunatic along?"

If a farmer went on sowing, spring after spring, and never reaping in the autumn, you would say he was a fit subject for the lunatic asylum. No; he is always looking forward to the time when he will reap the reward of his toil. He never expects that the seed he has sown will be lost.

It was inconceivable, incredible. Kara was a lunatic, but the directing genius was a devil. T. X. had a flat in Whitehall Gardens and thither he repaired to change for dinner.
