“Amory had only the vaguest idea as to what Bernard Shaw was—but Monsignor made quite as much out of «The Beloved Vagabond» and «Sir Nigel,» taking good care that Amory never once felt out of his depth.
But the trumpets were sounding for Amory's preliminary skirmish with his own generation.
«You're not sorry to go, of course. With people like us our home is where we are not,» said Monsignor.
«I am sorry—» «No, you're not. No one person in the world is necessary to you or to me.»
«Well—» «Good-by.»
THE EGOTIST DOWN Amory's two years at St.” source
