  • I know it is ignoble: a mere fever of the flesh: not, I declare, the convulsion of the soul.
  • In truth it was humble — but then it was sheltered, and I wanted a safe asylum: it was plodding — but then, compared with that of a governess in a rich house, it was independent; and the fear of servitude with strangers entered my soul like iron: it was not ignoble — not unworthy — not mentally degrading, I made my decision.

  • There are no more uses of "ignoble" in the book.

    William Shakespeare  --  The Tempest
