When his name was mentioned in the same sentence as Jane Austen by a dear and respected friend, I determined to make myself acquainted with him. He is my light reading, my Juicy Fruit, my slug-on-the-sofa all day read. This is my sixth post about Trollope (he has his own tag on this blog) and I can assure you that I hope to add many more. I have a few of his books on my shelf patiently waiting for me to get through the Medieval/King Arthur/Dante business so I can read them. Hold on, dear books, summer is coming!
Quotes is what we want. The first one is such a good reminder to keep up the drip drip of our daily work. Thank you, Mr. Trollope. Thank you very much, sir.
The habit of reading is the only enjoyment in which there is no alloy;
it lasts when all other pleasures fade.
There is no royal road to learning;
no short cut to the acquirement of any art.
