London in Quotations: Maurice Hewlett

London is like a great bird-cage. She, that innocent, gentle and single-hearted, is fluttering in there along with other millions. She can’t get out. She’s at the mercy of any cold-eyed, rapacious brute who will get her into a corner.

Maurice Hewlett (1861–1923), Mrs. Lancelot
