"The man of letters"

"HE rose late, slept long, ate heartily, drank deeply, read newspapers, began things he never finished, and wrote the ending of things whose beginnings he never accomplished; in a word, he was in every respect the man of letters."

~Hilaire Belloc: The Aftermath, or, Gleanings From A Busy Life.
