„I have read that the secret of gallantry is to accept the pleasures of life leisurely, and its inconveniences with a shrug“

—  James Branch Cabell American author 1879 - 1958

As quoted in in Contemporary American Novelists, 1900-1920 (1922) by Carl Clinton Van Doren
Контексте: I have read that the secret of gallantry is to accept the pleasures of life leisurely, and its inconveniences with a shrug; as well as that, among other requisites, the gallant person will always consider the world with a smile of toleration, and his own doings with a smile of honest amusement, and Heaven with a smile which is not distrustful — being thoroughly persuaded that God is kindlier than the genteel would regard as rational.
