Five Quotes

  1. Unimaginative people are spared quite a lot.
  2. I have no patience with people who grow old at sixty… Sixty should be the time to start something new, not put your feet up.
  3. I always read that men don’t like intelligent girls, but I’ve always found the reverse.
  4. I never really know the title of a book until it’s finished.
  5. Of course risk-taking does not always pay off, but it’s a lot of fun!

Mary Wesley was an English novelist. She was one of Britain’s most successful novelists, selling three million copies of her books, including 10 bestsellers in the last 20 years of her life. Her best known book, The Camomile Lawn, was turned into a television series.
