THEME BY RACHEL [DUCKPONDS]

14 days of Downton Abbey
Day 4: Favorite “upstairs” female character - Lady Mary Crawley

“Life can be so unfair. Everything seems so golden, one minute, then turns to ashes, the next. Can I ask you a question, Carson? Have you ever felt your life was somehow slipping away and there was nothing you could do to stop it?
Women like me don’t have a life. We choose clothes and pay calls and work for charity and do the season. But really we’re stuck in a waiting room until we marry.”
“Haven’t you heard? I don’t have a heart. Everyone knows that.”
