Hi, please forgive my being uninformed :blush: ...I am familiar with just a few of Lord Byron's poems; however, I cannot say I am well-versed with his works...I am trying to find the name of the work (poem, letter, etc.) from which this excerpt/quote was taken "the best way would be to avoid each other without appearing to do so"...thanks in advance for any replies! :)
