    Ghosts seem harder to please than we are; it is as though they haunted for haunting’s sake—much as we relive, brood, and smoulder over our pasts.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    In early days, I tried not to give librarians any trouble, which was where I made my primary mistake. Librarians like to be given trouble; they exist for it, they are geared to it. For the location of a mislaid volume, an uncatalogued item, your good librarian has a ferret’s nose. Give her a scent and she jumps the leash, her eye bright with battle.
    —Catherine Drinker Bowen (1897–1973)

    Though I am not imperial, and though Elizabeth may not deserve it, the Queen of England will easily deserve to have an emperor’s son to marry.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
