Engrave this Quote Greville Fane's French and Italian were droll; the imitative faculty had been denied her, and she had an unequalled gift, especially pen in hand, of squeezing big mistakes into small opportunities. She knew it, but she didn't care; correctness was the virtue in the world that, like her heroes and heroines, she valued least.
-Henry James, Greville Fane from The Real Thing: and Other Tales (1893) Tell a Friend
