BOSWELL ON TRUTH IN BIOGRAPHY

Boswell, who knew a thing or two about biography, wrote the following in the dedication of his Life of Johnson, to Joshua Reynolds:
 

"...though I tell nothing but the truth, I have still kept in my mind that the whole truth is not always to be exposed.  This, however, I have managed so as to occasion no diminution of the pleasure which my book should afford; though malignity may sometimes be disappointed of its gratifications."
