Meandering about . . .

Today is the birthday of Anthony Trollope (April 24, 1815 – December 6, 1882), author.

"No man thinks there is much ado about nothing when the ado is about himself." - Anthony Trollope

"Men who can succeed in deceiving no one else will succeed at last in deceiving themselves." - Anthony Trollope

"Considering how much we are all given to discuss the characters of others, and discuss them often not in the strictest spirit of charity, it is singular how little we are inclined to think that others can speak ill-naturedly of us, and how angry and hurt we are when proof reaches us that they have done so." - Anthony Trollope

"Never think that you're not good enough. A man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning." - Anthony Trollope

"I think the greatest rogues are they who talk most of their honesty." - Anthony Trollope

"Life is so unlike theory." - Anthony Trollope
