Other people’s words
I’ve talked before about the writer Elizabeth Taylor: her pithy, devastating prose.
The town seemed to her to be England at its worst, full of people trying to enjoy themselves and not managing it for various reasons — perhaps chiefly those of the weather and the deeply-rooted dullness it had caused.
from ‘The Soul of Kindness‘
by Elizabeth Taylor
