One must be amused





"I am sometimes bored by people, but never by life."

"I think young people have an awful feeling that life is slipping past them and they must do something - catch something - they don't quite know what, whereas they've only got to wait and it all comes."

"When the loo paper gets thicker and the writing paper thinner, it's always a bad sign, at home."

"Nothing makes people crosser than being considered too old for love."

"If one can't be happy, one must be amused."


Nancy Freeman-Mitford CBE (28th November 1904 – 30th June 1973)

  1. I know she's related to Stella Tennant but Erin O'Connor comes very close as her doppelgänger. *Jean looks startled*

    1. Absolutely no idea who either lady was until I looked them up - and yes, there certainly is a resemblance between Miss Mitford and Miss O'Connor. So when they're casting for the film... Jx
