Excerpt from Men Who Missed the Trail
But the Morgue contains notables only. You could not expect a newspaper to be interested in all the clerks and mechanics Of a community. Most Of us may go down town and come back, days without number; may earn a modest living, and mind our own business, and keep the commandments with reasonable care. And unless we - ah, that is just it. We must be or do something unusual. We must climb high or fall low. We must be so handsome or so homely that we attract attention. We must be a good deal better or a good deal worse than our neighbors on the block. We must run for something, or away from it. We must break out Of the class Of the average man, or we shall find no place in the Morgue.
