Rosemary Harris

  • The first time someone takes you out is always a critical point in the graph of a relationship. Too great lavishness — taxis every yard, a jeroboam of champagne; or too great carefulness — fish and chips at a café, waiting for buses in a downpour — are equally suspect in my opinion.

  • His eyes looked like two nervous fish trying to escape from a glass bowl.

  • Perhaps we always love our friends best when they are a little unfortunate; not too happy, not too well, not too rich.

  • Those people who rely on charm to get them what they want, who never need to work for love or admiration, what monsters they turn out to be!

Rosemary Harris, English writer

(1923)

Full name: Rosemary Jeanne Harris.
