Baroness Orczy

  • We seek him here, we seek him there, / Those Frenchies seek him everywhere. / Is he in heaven? — Is he in hell? / That demmed, elusive Pimpernel?

  • Fate is usually swift when she deals a blow.

  • The weariest nights, the longest days, sooner or later must perforce come to an end.

  • ... the unfortunate Major was one of those miserable people who seem to live in a state of perpetual enmity with everything and everybody.

  • There was just one instant of absolute silence, one of those magnetic moments when Fate seems to have dropped the spool on which she was spinning the threads of a life, and is just stooping in order to pick it up.

  • There is such wonderful balm in self-imposed sacrifice.

  • ... even the worst moments and the weariest journeys must come to an end ...

  • ... music is the most absorbing of all the arts. It absorbs the mind of the artist, whether creator or executant, to the exclusion of every other consideration outside his own immediate necessities or desires.
