"... CONTENTED STURNINE HUMAN FIGURES, a dozen
or so of them, sitting around a large long table... Perfect
equality is to be the rule; no rising or notice taken when
anybody enters or leaves. Let the entering man take his
place and pipe, without obligatory remarks; if he cannot
smoke...let him at least affect to do so, and not ruffle the
established stream of things."
- Thomas Carlyle, describing the smoking room of George I of Hanover
