"Almost all the people who’ve had the most effect on me I seem to have met by chance, yet looking back it seems as though I couldn’t but have met them." - W. Somerset Maugham
Another one of Maugham's. Wanted to buy a new edition for a while, found this one that is 71 years old. The same year, 1946, a movie adaptation premiered in Hollywood and it's another one I'm yet to see.
