Favorite Beatrix Quotes

1. "Many professionals have to sign gagging clauses or face the sack if they speak out. The social worker and therapist was familiar with the scare that revelation brings to the survivor. […]We are in this story. It isn't ours, but we are in it nonetheless, not least because of the viscous campaign which has followed us over the last ten years. Any organisation with which we work may receive correspondence from the accused adults' and ‘false memory' movements. Some of these propagandists are confidentially dominating the professional and political arguments using new information technology to spread what we consider to be smears, innuendo and misinformation. P8(refers to authors Beatrix Campbell & Judith Jones – a journalist and a social worker/therapist)"

3. "The woman was finally done, and Beatrix reached for a magazine. There were always German magazines lying around here, Vogue was extremely rare; who wanted to read German magazines, anyway? Twin Murders in Stuttgart. Certainly an awful place, it even sounded like murder. Sex in Germany. That was probably even worse."
Author: Ingeborg Bachmann
4. "But Beatrix knew very well that there were no jobs, not even the most pitiful office routine - she wasn't even qualified for that - and that no one would allow her to sleep until late in the afternoon because these ill-advised people all around her let themselves be squeezed into schedules; that she would never work, least of all learn a trade, because she had no ambition whatsoever to earn a single shilling, become self-supporting and spend eight hours a day with people who smelled bad."
Author: Ingeborg Bachmann
5. "I remember him reading 'Sleeping Beauty,' and he would play the score by Tchaikovsky as he read it. We'd also read 'Winnie the Pooh,' and, you know, those probably that he most often read me were 'Beatrix Potter' books, 'The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck' and 'The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.' I still have at least 15 of them."
Author: Jennifer Grant

Author: Julie Berry
7. "Beatrix puts a distance between herself and the rest of the world. She's very engaging, but also quite private in nature. I see the same qualities in Captain Phelan.""Yes," Amelia said. "You're absolutely right, Catherine. Put that way, the match does seem more appropriate.""I still have reservations," Leo said."You always do," Amelia replied. "If you'll recall, you objected to Cam in the beginning, but now you've accepted him.""That's because the more brothers-in-law I acquire," Leo said, "the better Cam looks by comparison."

9. "Bending his head over hers, Leo murmured, "When I give you away at the altar, Bea, I want you to remember something. I'm not really giving you away. I'm merely allowing him the chance to love you as much as the rest of us do."Beatrix's eyes watered, and he leaned against him. "He does," she whispered."I think so, too," her brother whispered back. "I wouldn't let you marry him otherwise."

10. "Captain Phelan," Cam asked, choosing his words with care. "Have you come to ask for our consent to marry Beatrix?"Christopher shook his head."If I decide to marry Beatrix, I'll do it with or without your consent."Leo looked at Cam. "Good God," he said in disgust. "This one's worse than Harry."

11. "And Poppy, remember that someday you will meet a frog who will turn into a handsome prince.""Good," Beatrix said. "Because all she's met so far are princes who turn into frogs." "Mr. Bayning is not a frog," Poppy protested."You're right," Beatrix said. "That was very unfair to frogs, who are lovely creatures."

12. "Beatrix wished she were a swooning sort of female. It seemed the only appropriate response to the situation.Unfortunately, no matter how she tried to summon a swoon, her mind remained intractably conscious."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
13. "We assured Phelan that we were more than happy to let him have you and your menagerie," Leo retorted."After that, he said he needed to think.""About what?" Beatrix demanded. "What is there to think about? Why is it taking him so long to make a decision?""He's a man, dear," Amelia explained kindly. "Sustained thinking is very difficult for them."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
14. "I swear on St. Francis, the patron saint of all animals." Seeing Poppy's hesitation, Beatrix added enthusiastically, "If a band of pirates kidnapped me and took me to their ship and threatened to make me walk the plank over a shiver of starving sharks unless I told them your secret, I still wouldn't tell it. If I were tied by a villain and thrown before a herd of stampeding horses all shod in iron, and the only way to keep from being trampled was to tell the villain your secret, I—"

15. "Of all the Hathaway sisters," Cam said equably, "Beatrix is the one most suited to choose her own husband. I trust her judgment."Beatrix gave him a brilliant smile. "Thank you, Cam.""What are you thinking?" Leo demanded of his brother-in-law. "You can't trust Beatrix's judgment.""Why not?""She's too young," Leo said."I'm twenty-three," Beatrix protested. "In dog years I'd be dead."

16. "Captain Phelan and I dislike each other," Beatrix told her. "In fact, we're sworn enemies."Christopher glanced at her quickly. "When did we become sworn enemies?"Ignoring him, Beatrix said to her sister, "Regardless, he's staying for tea.""Wonderful," Amelia said equably. "Why are you enemies, dear?""I met him yesterday while I was out walking," Beatrix explained. "And he called Medusa a ‘garden pest,'and faulted me for bringing her to a picnic."Amelia smiled at Christopher. "Medusa has been called many worse things around here, including ‘diseasedpincushion,' and ‘perambulating cactus.'"

17. "With all due respect," Christopher muttered, "this conversation is leading nowhere. At least one of you should point out that Beatrix deserves a better man.""That's what I said about my wife," Leo remarked. "Which is why I married her before she could find one."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
18. "Beatrix," Amelia said over her shoulder as they proceeded through the hallway. "Perhaps you should reconsider your attire. Poor Captain Phelan may find it somewhat shocking.""But he's already seen me like this," came Beatrix's voice from behind Christopher, "and I've already shocked him. What is the point in changing clothes? Captain, would you feel more comfortable if I took my breeches off?""No," he said hastily."Good, I'll keep them on. Really, I don't see why women shouldn't dress like this all the time. One can walk freely and even leap. How is one to chase after a goat in skirts?"
Author: Lisa Kleypas
19. "The boy heaved a sigh. "I would ask to go with you," he said, " but I have to finish my lessons. I so look forward to the day when I know everything. Then I won't have to read any more books or do any more counting."Beatrix smiled. "I don't wish to be discouraging, Rye, but it's not possible to know everything.""Mama does." Rye paused reflectively. "At least, Papa says we mus t pretend she does, because it makes her happy.""Your father," Beatrix informed him with a laugh, " is one of the wisest men I've ever known."

20. "Cat doesn't have to work. She's a woman of independent means. I settled enough money on her to allow her the freedom to do anything she wished. She went to boarding school for four years, and stayed to teach for another two. Eventually she came to me and said she'd accepted a position as a governess for the Hathaway family. I believe you were in France with Win atthe time. Cat went for the interview, Cam and Amelia liked her, Beatrix and Poppy clearly needed her, and no one seemed inclined to question her lack of experience.""Of course not," Leo said acidly. "My family would never bother with something so insignificant as job experience. I'm sure they started the interview by asking what her favoritecolor was."

21. "Superman stands alone. Superman did not become Superman, Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he is Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red S is the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears, the glasses the business suit, that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He's weak, unsure of himself... he's a coward. Clark Kent is Superman's critique on the whole human race, sort of like Beatrix Kiddo and Mrs. Tommy Plumpton."
