|There is one thing which a man can always do, if he chuses

in consequence of the missive, There is nowhere I can turn!, penned by Inspector Javert
As an upholder of the law, and an upright man, you know your duty.
You can sit down and write a fine flourishing letter, full of prevarication and compliments, persuading yourself that you have hit upon the very best method in the world of evading your moral duty to preserve your own peace of mind. Your letter disgusts me. It gives you all the advantages of sitting still when you ought to move, and of leading a life of mere kindness, and fancying expert excuses for it.
If you were to set out to act at once, in the tone of decision becoming a man, there shall be no opposition made to your going.
