Stephen Fry says: (On P. G. Wodehouse)

I’m shamelessly re-posting an excellent comment from Stephen Fry found on the Musclehead Blog. Happy Sunday.

“ Without Wodehouse I am not sure that I would be a tenth of what I am today — whatever that may be. In my teenage years, his writings awoke me to the possibilities of language. His rhythms, tropes, tricks and mannerisms are deep within me.

But more than that, he taught me something about good nature. It is enough to be benign, to be gentle, to be funny, to be kind.”
