A little something from...Elizabeth Gaskell

This is one of my favourite quotes from Elizabeth Gaskell's Wives and Daughters. I can't help but giggle a little everytime I read/hear it :)

"I say Gibson, we're old friends, and you're a fool if you take anything I say as an offense. Madam your wife and I didn't hit it off the only time I ever saw her. I won't say she was silly, but I think one of us was silly, and it wasn't me!"

Love this quote!
And Sir Michael Gambon was fabulous as Squire Hamley in the Wives & Daughters miniseries!
