Indeed…

Indeed, I scarce ever heard or saw the introductory words “Without vanity I may say…” etc. but some vain thing immediatly following.

In der Tat habe ich kaum jemals die einführenden Worte “Ohne Eitelkeit sage ich…” etc. gehört oder gelesen, ohne dass direkt im Anschluss etwas Eitles folgte.

(Benjamin Franklin, Autobiography)
