G.M. Young on the Oxford University Press

“Being published by the Oxford University Press is rather like being married to a duchess: the honor is almost greater than the pleasure.”

G.M. Young (Quoted in Rupert Hart-Davis, Letter to George Lyttleton, 29 Apr. 1956)

Excerpted from: Shapiro, Fred, ed. The Yale Book of Quotations. New Haven: Yale University Press, 2006.
