- A Christian dilettante; one who casts a shadow on tomorrow while waiting for the Greek Kalends.
- A mouther of sublime inanities.
- One who maps and surveys the air and constructs dainty Utopias with the building-blocks quarried from his unbelievable credulity.
- In the insane asylum of idealists, a man who imagines himself to be God.
- A militant bourgeois who has deserted both Rome and Reason because he can not stand competition.
