"He is content to go without air, space, quiet, decency and good manners"

“COMFORTS that were rare among our forefathers are now multiplied in factories and handed out wholesale; and indeed, nobody nowadays, so long as he is content to go without air, space, quiet, decency and good manners, need be without anything whatever that he wants; or at least a reasonably cheap imitation of it.”

~G.K. Chesterton: in CommonWealth, 1933.
