Mrs. Badger, speaking of dedication

24 April, 2010

Good side:

Young men like Mr. Allan Woodcourt, who take it from a strong interest in all that it can do, will find some reward in it through a great deal of work for a very little money and through years of considerable endurance and disappointment.

Not so good side:

People objected to Professor Dingo when we were staying in the north of Devon after our marriage… that he disfigured some of the houses and other buildings by chipping off fragments of those edifices with his little geological hammer. But the professor replied that he knew of no building save the Temple of Science.

(from Bleak House, Chapter XVII)
