Gissing, 1857-190, G. R. (n.d.). A Profitable Weakness. Retrieved from

Men in general owe sustenance to the meaner of their faculties, often enough to the basest possibility that is in them; and, even so, find the effort no light one. As a singular instance of something between the two, of a man who found his profit in the cultivation of a mere amiable weakness, without fatigue, and without sense of degradation, take Lambert Wellaway.
