Viola De Lesseps quotes

I would stay asleep my whole life, if I could dream myself into a company of players.

[to her Nurse] I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No... not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening, but love that... over-throws life. Unbiddable, ungovernable - like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture. Love - like there has never been in a play.

[to Will] Good sir? I heard you were a poet. But a poet of no words?

This is not life, Will. It is a stolen season.

Good morning, my lord. I see you are open for business - so let's to church.

Write me well.

I love you, Will, beyond poetry.
