'One would have met him, somehow or other, in the course of two years, if he had not been married. Well, married or unmarried, with his wife, or without his wife, I shall send him a card for Wednesday.' And Lady St. Julians paused, overwhelmed as it were by the commensurate vastness of her idea and her sacrifice. 'Do not you think it would be rather sudden?' said Lady Deloraine. 'What does that signify? He will understand it; he will have gained his object; and all will be right.' 'But are you sure it is his object? We do not know the man.' 'What else can be his object?' said Lady St. Julians. 'People get into Parliament to got on; their aims are indefinite. If they have indulged in hallucinations about place before they enter the House, they are soon freed from such distempered fancies; they find they have no more talent than other people, and if they had, they learn that power, patronage, and pay are reserved for us and our friends. Well then, like practical mer, they look to some result, and they get it.

Read information about the authorOne of the great British politicians of the nineteenth century, Disraeli served twice as Tory Prime Minister (1868 and 1874 - 1880) and was also a prominent figure in opposition. He is most famous today for the bitter hatred between himself and his political rival William Gladstone. He enjoyed the favour of Queen Victoria, who shared his dislike of Gladstone. His most significant political achievements are the 1867 Reform Act, in which he was instrumental, and the creation of the modern Conservative Party, with which he is credited. His literary career was greatly overshadowed by his parliamentary ambitions ('climbing the greasy pole'), but includes both romances and political novels.
