From Ernest Hemingway, Green Hills of Africa, (Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1935)


[The Masai] had that attitude that makes brothers, that unexpressed but instant and complete acceptance that you must be Masai wherever it is you come from. The attitude you only get from the best of the English, the best of the Hungarians and the very best Spaniards; the thing that used to be the most clear distinction of nobility when there was nobility. It is an ignorant attitude and the people who have it do not survive, but very few pleasanter things ever happen to you then the encountering of it. (p. 221)
