A Man with no ordinary, City convictions, can go far. (Just like the ability of a swimmer without cement trunks.)
Being young once is probably not enough.
A City dude said, “The benefits of ‘singing your own praises’ is that you know when to lay on the triple forte, and where to pass by sotto voce, and above all, when to move right on to the next verse.
a dead man,
a living one.
You can count on this: that a City person with no outstanding habits or vices is dull even to himself.
