Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote

Hobbies should be wives, not mistresses. It will not do to have more than one at a time. One hobby leads you out of extravagance; a team of hobbies you cannot drive till you are rich enough to find corn for them all. Few men are rich enough for that.


Caxtoniana: a Series of Essays on Life, Literature, and Manners (ed. 1864)
