    "...the human mind is capable of being excited without the application of gross and violent stimulants; and he must have a very faint perception of its beauty and dignity who does not know this, and who does not further know, that one being is elevated above another, in proportion as he possesses this capabablility...[A] multitude of causes, unknown to former times, are now acting with a combined force to blunt the discriminating powers of the mind and unfitting it for all voluntary exertion to reduce it to a state of almost savage torpor. The most effective of these causes are the great national events which are dailty taking place, and the increasing accumulation of men in cities, where the uniformity of their occupations produces a craving for extraordinary incidentss, which the rapid communication of intelligence hourly gratifies. To this tendency of life and manner the literature and theatrical exhibitions of the country have conformed themselves" -House of Leaves
