Say nothing good of yourself, you will be distrusted;
say nothing bad of yourself, you will be taken at your word.
I didn't want to work. It was as simple as that. I distrusted work, disliked it. I thought it was a very bad thing that the human race had unfortunately invented for itself.
I have always distrusted memoir. I tend to write my memoirs through my fiction. It's easier to get to the truth by not claiming that you are speaking it. Some things can be said in fiction that can never be said in memoir.
All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.
