“Just as love makes you blind so does wealth, and of the two blindnesses wealth is the worse because of the incalculable harm it is able to do to people other than yourself.”
Rufus King, Murder on the Yacht

“A union of the States is a union of the men composing them, from whence a national character result to the whole,”
Rufus King

“He glanced nervously over his shoulder with a remarkable pair of codfish eyes.

'Like a ’orrid movie I saw once in Canarsie. Bunch o’ lunks set off on a cruise to nowhere, just like this, and wot do you suppose they all was?'

'What?'

'Dead.'

'How?'

'Dead as mutton, only they didn’t know it.”
Rufus King
