   Broadbent: ... I find the world quite good enough for me—rather a jolly place, in fact.

   Keegan (looking at him with quiet wonder): You are satisfied?

   Broadbent: As a reasonable man, yes. I see no evils in the world—except of course, natural evils—that cannot by remedied by freedom, self-goverment and English institutions. I think so, not because I am an Englishman, but as a matter of common sense.

   Keegan: You feel at home in the world then?

   Broadbent: Of course. Don't you?

   Keegan (from the very depths of his nature): No.
