From Orley Farm, by Anthony Trollope
"Every prig who wishes to have it believed that he does more than his neighbors either burns the midnight lamp or gets up at four in the morning. Good wholesome work between breakfast and dinner never seems to count for anything."
From Chapter XVIII, The English Von Bauhr
