Historical Macauley-isms

By Thomas Macauley on

“The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he would never be found out.” -Thomas Babington Macauley

Dad offered our own family version as from his father:

“Don’t do anything you would not want published on the front page of tomorrow’s paper.” – John J. Macauley

This philosophy runs in the family, too:

“It is a common delusion that you can make things better by talking about them.”
– Dame Rose Macauley
