It is enough for me that, wherever men are born into the world,
my suggestions with regard to them may be carried out, and when
you have made them what I would have them be, you have done what
is best for them and best for other people. If I fail to fulfil
this promise, no doubt I am to blame; but if I fulfil my promise,
it is your own fault if you ask anything more of me, for I have
promised you nothing more.--from the Author's Preface
