"Speech, so a wise old Frenchman said to me once, is an invention of man's to prevent him from thinking. It is also an infallible means of discovering that which he wishes to hide. A human being, Hastings, cannot resist the opportunitiy to reveal himself and express his personality which conversation gives him. Every time he will give himself away. " (p. 226)
