Nonetheless they [Gerald Kelly and Somerset Maugham] had a number of attributes in common: they were both tolerant and unshockable, both had a quick wit and a hot temper, although Maugham was better at controlling his; they both had a passion for travel; and they took pride in their intellectual integrity:
