Never-Ending Book Quiz
From which novel is the following passage excerpted?: "That was the night he told me his theory, and although I do not want to go into theory, maybe it is a part of character. [His] theory was that people had a buried nature—“the noble savage,” he called it—which was changed and whipped and trained by everything in life until it was almost dead. Yet if people were lucky and if they were brave, sometimes they would find a mate with the same buried nature and that could make them happy and strong. At least relatively so. There were so many things in the way, and if everybody had a buried nature, well everybody also had a snob, and the snob was usually stronger. The snob could be a tyrant to buried nature."
