“Never ask for whom the belles toil- we toil at our toilette for the approval and admiration of our husbands and the general appreciation of men with whom we work or meet in other outside situations.”
Anne Fogarty, Wife Dressing: The Fine Art of Being a Well-Dressed Wife

Alan Bradley
“Have you ever wondered, Dogger," I asked, "if wickedness is a chemical state?"
"Indeed I have, Miss Flavia," he said. "I have sometimes thought of little else.”
Alan Bradley, Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd
