The Age of Innocence

'What'll we do with ourselves this afternoon?' cried Daisy, 'and the day after that, and the next thirty years?'
‘Don’t be morbid,’ Jordan said. ‘Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.’
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald


The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire has died. She was a remarkable woman. Witty writer. The last of the Mitford Sisters.

RIP Deborah Mitford Cavendish. 1920-2014.

The way I become friends with somebody is a slow process. You can’t just spill your guts and tell them everything about yourself and expect them to listen and understand you because you don’t know them.

Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence


Generations of breeding and wealth had to come together to produce me. I have more in common with Marie Antoinette than with you.
