“Granny always said finding justice was as tough as putting socks on a rooster.” ― Jessica Maria Tuccelli, Glow

“I suppose the fact is that no friendship can stand the breakfast test… Civilisation has done away with curl-papers, yet at that hour the soul of the Hausfrau is as tightly screwed up as was ever her grandmother’s hair, and though my body comes down mechanically, having been trained that way by punctual parents, my soul never thinks of beginning to wake up for other people till lunch-time, and never does so completely till it has been taken out of doors and aired in the sunshine. Who can begin the conventional amiability the first thing in the morning? It is the hour of savage instincts and natural tendencies; it is the triumph of the Disagreeable and the Cross. I am convinced that the Muses and the Graces never thought of having breakfast anywhere but in bed.”

MARY ELIZABETH , ARNIM – Elizabeth and Her Garden
