Daily Dose

From An Autobiography, by Anthony Trollope


"The man, whether rightly or wrongly, feels that the world is using him with extreme injustice.  The more absolutely he fails, the higher, it is probable, he will reckon his own merits; and the keener will be the sense of injury in that he whose work is of so high a nature can't get bread, while they whose tasks are mean are lapped in luxury."

From Chapter XI
