Charlotte Wills

Famous quotes containing the words charlotte and/or wills:

    Last night, party at Lansdowne-House. Tonight, party at Lady Charlotte Greville’s—deplorable waste of time, and something of temper. Nothing imparted—nothing acquired—talking without ideas—if any thing like thought in my mind, it was not on the subjects on which we were gabbling. Heigho!—and in this way half London pass what is called life.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    My dear Mrs. Reed, sometimes in my profession there comes a contest of wills between the doctor and his patient. The patients are clever. Oh, very clever. And they can fool the doctor. Sometimes.
    Dewitt Bodeen (1908–1988)
