Writer Raymond Mortimer, Frances Partridge (then Marshall) and Dadie Rylands.

‘What I most dread is that life should slip by unnoticed, like a scene half glimpsed from a railway carriage window. What I want most is to be always reacting to something in my surroundings, whether a complex of visual sensations, a physical activity like skating or making love, or a concentrated process of thought; but nothing must be passively accepted, everything modified by passing it through my consciousness as worm does earth.

From a 1940 diary entry by Frances Partridge [1900 – 2004], a part of the Bloomsbury Group who outlasted them all.

Take care and keep laughing!
