Charles Williams, The Greater Trumps

"That sovereign estate, the inalienable heritage of man, had been in her, as
in all, falsely mortgaged to the intruding control of her own greedy
desires. Even when the true law was discovered, when she knew that she
had the right and the power to possess all things, on the one condition
that she was herself possessed, even then her freedom to yield herself
had been won by many conflicts."
