"So often is the virgin sheet of paper more real than what one has to say, and so often one regrets having marred it." -- Harold Acton
Sir Harold Mario Mitchell Acton KBE (5 July 1904 — 27 February 1994) was a British writer, scholar and dilettante who is probably most famous for being believed, incorrectly, to have inspired the character of "Anthony Blanche" in Evelyn Waugh's novel Brideshead Revisited (1945). Waugh himself wrote, "The characters in my novels often wrongly identified with Harold Acton were to a great extent drawn from Brian Howard".
