I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.In a public place recently I saw one of those electric stair-lifts like the one the Gremlins used to launch the old lady out the window. What I hadn't seen ever before was posted there on the wall: an Ontario License for Elevating Devices.
-Henry David Thoreau
So it goes.
Citizens, it seems, must avoid elevating themselves unless they have received the requisite permissions; and so they do.
