Never-Ending Book Quiz
British journalist Harold Nicolson (the husband of Vita Sackville-West) had this to say about his last day at the newspaper he ceased to work for in 1931:
"I have learnt much in this place. I have learnt that shallowness is the supreme evil. I have learnt that rapidity, hustle and rush are the allies of superficiality. My fastidiousness has been increased and with it a loathing of the uneducated. I have come to believe that the gulf between the educated and the uneducated is wider than that between the classes and the more galling to the opposite side. I have not been popular in the office. I make perfunctory farewells. As I leave the building I shake my shoes symbolically."
