PITHY QUOTES FROM PAST MASTERS



"Depend upon it, our best chance of escaping the mischief he is empowered to do us is by soothing him into the belief that his nice little revenue is a pension, and not a salary, and that he had much better employ himself in fishing for trout than in teaching the local guardians of the poor how to perform a duty of which they know much, and of which he knows nothing. Let us hope the best from his placid and gentlemanlike exterior – let us hope that he will let us alone.”


The Social Problem Novels of Frances Trollope. Volume 4, Jessie Phillips: A Tale of the Present Day (1843), Volume 1
