More From Anthony Trollope
- "The satirist who writes nothing but satire should write but little – or it will seem that his satire springs rather from his own caustic nature than from the sins of the world in which he lives."
- "They who do not understand that a man may be brought to hope that which of all things is the most grievous to him, have not observed with sufficient closeness the perversity of the human mind."
- "Success is the necessary misfortune of life, but it is only to the very unfortunate that it comes early."
