Roberta Gellis
“It is too late for me to learn your wisdom in this matter. From the time I knew aught, I have lived with a knight and his lady whose love lit and warmed the dark hall on winter's nights. Madam, my example comes not from any book of romance. My grandparents walked and breathed; they kissed and quarreled. This I must have, and I will seek it with the point of my knife in a bad husband's heart if I can find it no other way.”
Roberta Gellis

M.C. Halliday
“The greatest challenge of my life has been to see and accept the actual truth without great pain and struggle against it.”
M.C. Halliday, I Came Up Stairs: A Victorian Courtesan's Memoirs, 1867 to 1871
