Interesting words - George Gissing

"It's a huge misfortune, this will-o'-the wisp attraction exercised by London on young men with of brains. They come here to be degraded, or to perish, when their true sphere is a life of peaceful remoteness. The type of man capable of success in London is more or less callous and cynical. If I had the training of boys, I would teach them to think of London as the last place where life can be lived worthily.
And the place where you are most likely to die in squalid wretchedness."
George Gissing
