AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Luxury.


It is the loveliest study you ever saw -- octagonal with a peaked roof, each face filled with a spacious window -- perched in complete isolation on the top of an elevation that commands leagues of valley and city and retreating ranges of distant blue hills. 


It is a cozy nest and just room in it for a sofa, table, and three or four chairs, and when the storms sweep down the remote valley and the lighting flashes behind the hills beyond and the rain beats upon the roof over my head—imagine the luxury of it.

Mark Twain
