The history of the Victorian Age will never be written: we know too much about it. For ignorance is the first requisite of the historian - ignorance, which simplifies and clarifies, which selects and omits, with a placid perfection unattainable by the highest art.
Lytton Strachey, Eminent Victorians (1918)
Discretion is not the better part of biography.
Lytton Strachey, in Michael Holroyd Lytton, Strachey vol. 1 (1967)
