Andrea Stuart

  • The temperament of a collector is an interesting one; after all, necessity is never the raison d'être of a collection. And since a collection can never be complete — there is always another item or a better version available — its creation requires a predatory love of objects and an endless appetite.

  • [On meeting Napoleon for the first time:] Rose [renamed Josephine by him] was both a product and an emblem of the prevailing zeitgeist.

Andrea Stuart, Barbadian-British historian and writer

(1962)
