• Mr. Lely, I desire you would use all your skill to paint my picture truly like me, and not flatter me at all; but remark all these roughnesses, pimples, warts, and everything as you see me, otherwise I will never pay a farthing for it.

    Quoted in HoraceWalpole, Anecdotes of Painting in England (1763). Usually misquoted as "warts and all."
