Which of these analogies does Mr. Stevens use to describe a great butler’s professionalism?
"Professionalism is the coronet that sits upon the head of a butler, and is no less heavier."
"A great butler’s professionalism manifested itself in one’s ability to 'achieve the illusion of absence.'"
"The greatest of butlers is a general to his serving men, ever prepared for battle under the mantle of composure."
"A butler’s ultimate greatness resides in combining the skills of a surgeon and a sorcerer."
"The great butlers wear their professionalism as a gentleman will wear his suit; he will not let ruffians or circumstances tear it off him in the public gaze."
