Quote of the Day (George Meredith, on Cynicism)

"I remember hearing Mr. Whitford say that cynicism is intellectual dandyism without the coxcomb's feathers; and it seems to me that cynics are only happy in making the world as barren to others as they have made it for themselves."—English novelist George Meredith, The Egoist (1879)
