Balasaheb Thackeray

Famous quotes containing the word thackeray:

    Certain it is that scandal is good brisk talk, whereas praise of one’s neighbour is by no means lively hearing. An acquaintance grilled, scored, devilled, and served with mustard and cayenne pepper excites the appetite; whereas a slice of cold friend with currant jelly is but a sickly, unrelishing meat.
    —William Makepeace Thackeray (1811–1863)
