If your heel be nimble and bright, you may get there by candlelight.

H.D. Thoreau, 14 January 1854:

I just had a coat come home from the tailor’s. Ah me! Who am I that should wear this coat? It was fitted upon one of the devil’s angels about my size. Of what use that measuring of me if he did not measure my character, but only the breadth of my shoulders, as it were a peg to hang it on. This is not the figure that I cut.

I'm for North Carolina and points north. Excelsior!
