Lord Byron

1788 - 1824

A Quote by George Gordon, Lord Byron on nobility, privacy, and vices

I was accused of every monstrous vice by public rumour and private rancour; my name, which had been a knightly or noble one, was tainted. I felt that, if what was whispered, and muttered, and murmured, was true, I was unfit for England; if false, England was unfit for me.
