✹ About Friday 29 March 1667 Dorothy on 31 Mar 2020 • Link I have been reading along for years now and never posted, but today john inspired me. I am sure Pepys' diary entries are more open about his true actions, feelings, motives, etc. than any of us could achieve if we kept a diary. We would all self-censor to make ourselves look good, even if was just to our future rereading self. But every day I see comments so smug and complacent they might as well adapt the words of the pharisee, "God, I thank you that I am not like this man." I have always thought reviews and comments tell more about the reviewer and commenters themselves than the subject under consideration and my years in this group have proven it to me.
