Quotes of the Day: Never Explain Yourself

A flurry of quotes from The Columbia World of Quotations via
"Never explain—your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyhow."
Elbert Hubbard, 1921.

"It is a good rule in life never to apologise. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them."
P.G. Wodehouse, from the 1914 short story "The Man Upstairs."

"Never complain and never explain."
British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, from John Morley's Life of Gladstone, vol. 1, 1903.
A shame no one subscribes to such wisdom in our own time, isn't it?
