Excerpt from Sartor Resartus: The Life and Opinions of Herr Teufelsdrockh
Tissues are Included and screened, his whole Pacul ties work, his whole Self lives, moves, and has its being? For if, now and then, some straggling broken-winged thinker has cast an owl's-glance into this obscure region, the most have soared over it altogether heedless regarding Clothes as a property,\ not an accident, as quite natural and spontaneous, like the leaves of trees, like the plumage of birds. In all speculations they have tacitly figured man as a Clotaed Animal; whereas he is by nature a Naked Animal; and only in Certain circumstances, by purpose and devrce, masks himself in Clothes. Shakespeare says, we are creatures that look before and after: the more surprising that we do not look round a little, and see what,is passing under our Jeery eyes.
