Horace Walpole, 'Gothick' Man of Letters | History Today

There are three persons you should never deceive:  your physician, your confessor, and your lawyer.”   —   Walpole

(We had this quote way back in 2010.  And, at that time I attributed it to Robert Walpole.  But now I believe it’s much more likely from his son, Horace.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

To act with common sense according to the moment is the best wisdom I know.”   —   Horace Walpole

(Many many things depend on situational reasoning.  You can feel “right” in your dogmatic rigidness all you want . . . until you are dead right.  A wise man knows it’s better to live to fight another day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
