Literary Quote: Rudyard Kipling

Here's a quote from Rudyard Kipling -- the words just really hit me today with their beauty and touch of the acerbic!
He wrapped himself in quotations -- as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors.

Isn't that a wondrous use of words?

[BTW, I get quotes like this every morning on my igoogle page from a gadget called "Daily Literary Quote", some of which are blech, but many are wonderful.]
