"I sit here in the upper circle surrounded by copper and gold, and
smile with joy under my fly net as all the light, glory and quivering
brightness passes slowly and freely before my eyes. Nothing happier than
this. I shout and laugh at my immense wealth, all free and without
responsibility. Who could steal this from me? No one."
