I come from an immigrant culture. I'm only a couple of generations away from having been a servant girl myself.
We are beginning to wonder whether a servant girl hasn't the best of it after all. She knows how the salad tastes without the dressing, and she knows how life's lived before it gets to the parlor door.
The American girl makes a servant of her husband and then finds him contemptible for being a servant
Not only had he lost the only girl he'd ever loved, he'd lost her in duplicate, like some heartbroken but highly efficient civil servant.
Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.
