The Citizen and the Traveler

“Look round you”, said the citizen. “This is the largest market in the world.”

“Oh, surely not”, said the traveler.

“Well, perhaps not the largest”, said the citizen, “but much the best.”

“You are certainly wrong there”, said the traveler. “I can tell you …”

They buried the stranger in the dusk.

—Robert Louis Stevenson
