“The discovery of her life was that she herself didn't actually need money, apart from a little cash for those relationships with taxi drivers and officials of the Great Western Railway which can only be expressed financially.”
Elizabeth Ironside, Death in the Garden

“Death is a huge cliff and when you are about to be thrown off it, like an Aztec sacrifice, other problems on the valley floor look very small, but once on the ground with the rest of the world they become again of dominating proportions.”
Elizabeth Ironside, Death in the Garden

“Helena, like many women who ruled their own lives, adored being told what to do when there was no obligation to follow the advice given.”
