Excerpt from People I Have Met: Or Pictures of Society and People of Mark, Drawn Under a Thin Veil of Fiction

Real life is not as commonplace as it is represented. The contrasts, surprises, combinations, and novel situations, which some say "are only found in plays," occur in every day society - with the difference, that those in a play are published to the world, while those in private life are known only to one or two. The dread of misrepresentation conceals from us most of the machinery of life, and all of its most wonderful occurrences, except now and then one that is disclosed by accident. He who fancies that he sees all that is dramatic, even in the circle where he is most intimate, is like a deaf and blind man unconsciously present at a play.
