Thought for the Day

“Any change,
even a change for the better,
is always accompanied
by drawbacks and discomforts.”

~ Arnold Bennett

Arnold BennettBorn: 27 May 1867
Died: 27 March 1931

An English novelist, Bennett won a literary competition in Tit-Bits magazine in 1889 and was encouraged to take up journalism full time. In 1894, he became assistant editor of the periodical Woman. He noticed that the material offered by a syndicate to the magazine was not very good, so he wrote a serial which was bought by the syndicate for 75 pounds. He then wrote another. This became The Grand Babylon Hotel. Just over four years later, his first novel, A Man from the North, was published to critical acclaim and he became editor of the magazine.
