From "The Two Breaths"

By Charles Kingsley.

“LADIES […] I must apologise if I say many things which are well known to many persons in this room : they ought to be well known to all : but it is generally best to assume totatl ignorance in one’s hearers, and to begin from the beginning […] every time you breathe you breathe two different breaths; you take in one, you give out another. The composition of these two breaths is different. Their effects are different. The breath which has been breathed out must not be breathed in again.”
