snub & distemper

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf:

Each sortie of ours in pursuit of information upon these cardinal points of perspective - God, man, Nature - is snubbed back with ruthless common sense. 

The great are to be pitied and so are the poor; both are exposed to distempers and uneasiness; the middle station between the mean and the great is the best;
