Quote of the Day (Anthony Trollope, on England’s ‘Perils of Winter’)

“The comic almanacs give us dreadful pictures of January and February; but, in truth, the months which should be made to look gloomy in England are March and April. Let no man boast himself that he has got through the perils of winter till at least the seventh of May.” —English novelist Anthony Trollope (1815-1882), Doctor Thorne (1858)
