A Passage to India
"[…] We're out here to do justice and keep the peace. Them's my sentiments. India isn't a drawing-room."
"Your sentiments are those of a god," [Mrs. Moore] said quietly, but it was his manner rather than his sentiments that annoyed her.
Trying to recover his temper, [Ronny] said, "India likes gods."
"And Englishmen like posing as gods." (1.5.88-91)
"All unfortunate natives are criminals at heart, for the simple reason that they live south of latitude 30." (2.18.1)
[Fielding] had not gone mad at the phrase "an English girl fresh from England," he had not rallied to the banner of race. He was still after facts, though the herd had decided on emotion. Nothing enraged Anglo-India more than the lantern of reason if it is exhibited for one moment after its extinction is decreed. (2.17.23)
