A nation is only an individual multiplied.
A foreigner can photograph the exteriors of a nation, but I think that
is as far as he can get. No foreigner can report its interior -- its soul,
its life, its speech, its thought.
Nations do not think, they only feel. They get their feelings at second
hand through their temperaments, not their brains.
