Wharton, E. (n.d.). The Seed of the Faith. Retrieved from

Excerpt: THE blinding June sky of Africa hung over the town. In the doorway of an Arab coffee?house a young man stood listening to the remarks exchanged by the patrons of the establishment, who lay in torpid heaps on the low shelf bordering the room. The young man?s caftan was faded to a dingy brown, but the muslin garment covering it was clean, and so was the turban wound about his shabby fez. Cleanliness was not the most marked characteristic of the conversation, to which he lent a listless ear. It was no prurient curiosity that fixed his attention on this placid exchange of obscenities; he had lived too long in Morocco for obscenities not to have lost their savor. But he had never quite overcome the fascinated disgust with which he listened, nor the hope that one among the talkers would suddenly reveal some sense of a higher ideal of what, at home, the earnest women he knew used solemnly to call a Purpose.
