If you know Thackeray at all, you’ll know he had quite the fine, discerning eye toward the frantic facade of high society and the rogues who try to climb into it.
That’s what makes the below quote so juicy:
But my motivation for you today is, even as you acknowledge this foible of ours, make a concerted effort to remembering those kindnesses done to you—and the ones you do to others.
That’s all! Have a great day. d
