'A thing that is wholly a sham, said Treitschke, speaking of the British Empire, 'cannot in this world of ours, endure for ever. Why did this Empire appear to Treitschke to be 'wholly a sham'? Was it not because it did not answer to any definition of the word 'Empire' to be found in German political philosophy; because it did not mean dominion and uniformity, but liberty and variety; because it did not rest upon Force, as, in his view, every firmly established state must do; because it was not governed by a single master, whose edicts all its subjects must obey?

'Ah, it is not the first time, or something of that sort. The children rushed toward her and tried to quiet her. I said: 'Don't sham. She said: 'You look upon everything as a sham.

The result will be a sham that will deceive no one, and you will soon tire of it, and the sooner the better. Be honest. If you have only cheap material to work with, be satisfied with unambitious undertakings. Let them be in keeping with what you have to work with simple, unpretentious, and without any attempt in the way of deception.
