Daily Dose

From The Caxtons, A Family Picture, by Edward Bulwer Lytton


"'For public life a man should be one-sided.  He must act with party; and a party insists that the shield is silver, when if it will take the trouble to turn the corner it will see that the reverse of the shield is gold.  Woe to the man who makes the discovery alone, while his party are still swearing the shield is silver, -- and that not once in his life, but every night!"

From Part Sixth, Chapter I.
