    @Today’s quote

    ““This world is a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel.”
    –Horace Walpole.

    He also said:

    The whole secret of life is to be interested in one thing profoundly and in a thousand things well.
    –Horace Walpole.

    Justice is rather the activity of truth, than a virtue in itself. Truth tells us what is due to others, and justice renders that due. Injustice is acting a lie.
    –Horace Walpole.

    Horace Walpole: An 18th century British Conservative aristocrat and public intellectual who would be right at home with those (today’s Conservative aristocrats) who long for the return of the18th century.
