Five quotes by Max Beerbohm

Sir Henry Maximilian Beerbohm (24 August 1872 – 20 May 1956) was an English essayist, parodist and caricaturist under the signature Max. He first became known in the 1890s as a dandy and a humorist. He was the drama critic for the Saturday Review from 1898 until 1910, when he relocated to Rapallo, Italy. In his later years he was popular for his occasional radio broadcasts. Among his best-known works is his only novel, Zuleika Dobson, published in 1911. His caricatures, drawn usually in pen or pencil with muted watercolour tinting, are in many public collections.
 I am a Tory Anarchist; I should like every one to go about doing just as he pleased – short of altering any of the things to which I have grown accustomed. 
 Man is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests. 
 Most women are not so young as they are painted. 
 Only the insane take themselves quite seriously.  
 To say that a man is vain means merely that he is pleased with the effect he produces on other people. A conceited man is satisfied with the effect he produces on himself.
