I read no newspapers

"I read no newspapers, and hardly remember who is President, and feel
as if I had no more concern with what other people trouble themselves
about than if I dwelt in another planet."
Nathaniel Hawthorne, April 28, 1841, in The Complete Writings of
Nathaniel Hawthorne; Passages from the American Note-Books, Boston,
1868, p. 293.
