Re: "The art of acceptance is..."


On the quote page, the quote "The art of acceptance is ..." is attributed to Reader's Digest, December 1954. This is not wrong but is indirect, as that source simply gives the quote with attribution: "Quoted in The Arts of Living (Simon and Schuster)". The latter appears to be: "The arts of living, [by] Ernest Dimnet [and others] from the pages of Vogue magazine, with biographical profiles by its editors, and a pref. by Gilbert Highet, [New York] Simon and Schuster, 1954." This is probably a collection of essays and/or interviews. The Hathi Trust search-only index suggests that it appears somewhere between pages 146 and 164, the most likely page being 148, or perhaps 152. The quote is a bit odd without context; it would be good to have some. --R. S. Shaw (talk) 18:46, 18 April 2019 (UTC)Reply
