Time and circumstance

Posted by ESC on November 30, 2010 at 19:42

“I’m what time and circumstance made me.” A line from Boardwalk Empire, an HBO series set in Atlantic City in the Prohibition era. (Great show!) No offense to the excellent Boardwalk writers, but it sounds like a line from poetry or literature. I've looked in a few quote books and can't find it. Any ideas?
