The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 6, Chapter 37

By Laurence Sterne

Book 6, Chapter 37

  • This is what happened: Toby fell in love.
  • That's not a great phrase, because it implies that love is something below a man. But whatever it is, it's love, and Toby fell into it. And no, the love of Toby's life isn't his fortifications.
