by - 9:34:00 PM

On the sudden death of Turkish diplomat Mr Pamuk at Downton  during a shooting weekend:
‘Oh my dears. Is it really true? I can’t believe it. Last night he looked so well. Of course it would happen to a foreigner. It’s typical?.?.?. No Englishman would dream of dying in someone else’s house — especially somebody they didn’t even know.’

On feminism:
Lady Mary Crawley: ‘Sybil is entitled to her opinions.’
Dowager Countess: ‘No. She isn’t until she is married, then her husband will tell her what her opinions are.’

On beauty:
To Lady Cora about Lady Mary: ‘We’d better get her settled before the bloom has gone quite off the rose.’

On mourning clothes:
‘No one wants to kiss a girl  in black.’

On changing her mind:
‘I’m a woman, Mary. I can be as contrary as I choose.’
