From the days of old

“Rich or poor, you must always, always be a lady. Put others before yourself, listen to them, be kind, and go about life gracefully. Understand that you must never be selfish, and it must never be about you.” – Granny

Charles: You don’t have to please others all the time.

Georgiana: It’s what I’ve been brought up to do. Difficult lesson to unlearn.

Charles: Would you permit me an observation? I believe you do it so that people will love you.

Georgiana: What makes you say that?

Charles: From what I’ve seen. From your husband, your friends, especially Lady Bess… Even the public.

Georgiana: I never thought of it that way before. You make me sound so pitiable.

The Duchess
