“That long-gone sense of innocence and trust now reminded her of the feeling she now had when about to put on a new dress, or when given a box of chocolates sealed up in its wrapper. Everything was lovely in the anticipation. There must have been a time, she thought wistfully, when disappointment was an undiscovered emotion.
Juliet Nicolson, Abdication

“Silence can bring with it a vacancy that in its turn craves the distraction of the human voice or the obscuring impact created...by music. These distractions can help to stifle the terror of being abandoned to the silence of the noisy mind.”
Juliet Nicolson, The Great Silence 1918-1920: Living in the Shadow of the Great War

“Eddy, Vita’s cousin. Even better, if Vita herself had been born”
Juliet Nicolson, A House Full of Daughters: A Memoir of Seven Generations
