I AND MY CHIMNEY - Herman Melville

This quote was added by maberson
In fact, I would permit no gibes to be cast at either myself or my chimney; and never again did my visitor refer to it in my hearing, without coupling some compliment with the mention. It well deserves a respectful consideration. There it stands, solitary and alone - not a council - of ten flues, but, like his sacred majesty of Russia, a unit of an autocrat.
