Quote of the Day-------Goodreads
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive. George Gordon Byron
May 17, 1824: Before dying in Greece, Lord Byron entrusted a friend with his memoirs. Other friends, worried that the memoirs would be scandalous, fought to destroy the manuscript—190 years ago today, they succeeded, tearing it up and burning it in the office of Byron's publisher.
What a shame about his memoirs!
