Anthony Trollope war ein englischer Schriftsteller und einer der erfolgreichsten und meistgelesenen Romanautoren der viktorianischen Ära. Er gilt mit insgesamt 47 Romanen, etlichen Reisebeschreibungen, Erzählungen, Essays, Biographien und einem Bühnenstück als literarischer Rekordschreiber. Sechs seiner Romane handeln in der imaginären Grafschaft Barsetshire. Das deutsche Leserpublikum zeigte für sein viktorianisches Gesellschaftsmilieu eher wenig Interesse.

„It would seem that the full meaning of the word marriage can never be known by those who, at their first outspring into life, are surrounded by all that money can give.“

— Anthony Trollope
Context: It would seem that the full meaning of the word marriage can never be known by those who, at their first outspring into life, are surrounded by all that money can give. It requires the single sitting-room, the single fire, the necessary little efforts of self-devotion, the inward declaration that some struggle shall be made for that other one. The Bertrams (1859), Ch. 30

„What men ought to want is liberty.“

— Anthony Trollope
Context: "I think it is so glorious," said the American. "There is no such mischievous nonsense in all the world as equality. That is what father says. What men ought to want is liberty." Ch. 48

„There are things done which are as holy as the heavens, — which are clear before God as the light of the sun, which leave no stain on the conscience, and which yet the malignity of man can invest with the very blackness of hell!“

— Anthony Trollope
Context: But how shall I excuse it? There are things done which are as holy as the heavens, — which are clear before God as the light of the sun, which leave no stain on the conscience, and which yet the malignity of man can invest with the very blackness of hell! Ch. 42

„There is no such mischievous nonsense in all the world as equality.“

— Anthony Trollope
Context: "I think it is so glorious," said the American. "There is no such mischievous nonsense in all the world as equality. That is what father says. What men ought to want is liberty." Ch. 48

„Speak to me of honour, of duty, and of nobility; and tell me what they require of you.“

— Anthony Trollope
Context: But between you and me there should be no mention of law as the guide of conduct. Speak to me of honour, of duty, and of nobility; and tell me what they require of you. Ch. 61
