One of the reasons I like Downton Abbey is because of the writing. It’s very entertaining without needing to rely on crudeness to keep the viewer interested—it assumes that the people watching are more intelligent than that. Which is why I chose the quote above as my response to today’s Daily Prompt.
I know the assignment was to choose one quote and write a post around it, and I did that, but there are so many more I could have picked. So the runners up are:
“I hope you and the smart really people sleep in separate rooms.”- Lady Mary
“No one tells you about raising daughters. You think it will be like Little Women and instead they’re at each others’ throats.”- Cora
“Oh dear, have you swallowed a dictionary?”- Mrs. Patmore
“I’m a woman. I can be as contrary as I wish.”-Violet
