of a famous quote/title:

"Not so," he answered. "Well, I know that, did I move and
speak in your London, none there are who would not know me
for a stranger. That is not enough for me. Here I am noble.
I am a Boyar. The common people know me, and I am master.
But a stranger in a strange land, he is no one. Men know him not,
and to know not is to care not for. I am content if I am
like the rest, so that no man stops if he sees me, or pauses
in his speaking if he hears my words, `Ha, ha! A stranger!'
I have been so long master that I would be master still,
or at least that none other should be master of me."
