Today’s quote comes from Rex Stout’s Some Buried Caesar. I started reading Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe books because Bertie Wooster in P.D. Wodehouse’s novels did and I’m so glad I did. They are ripping good detective stories as Bertie might say. Anyway I was re-reading the book and this one quote really spoke to me. One of the characters is addressing Wolfe and I hope that the same quote can be said about me. It’s at the end of chapter 8, my edition has it on page 106.
“I didn’t know you had really earned your reputation, so many people haven’t, but I see now you have.”
