"...You may shoot me, or beat me to a mummy: my person is in your power, but my mind is beyond your reach."
Mary Eleanor Bowes,
"...my mind is beyond your reach"- very deep- I like it a lot.
She was quite the lady! Her husband on the other hand...
Wow! She was a brave and wise lady. He sure didn't deserve her.
Oh my goodness the things he did to her make me sick...that's why her new biography is worth a read!
What a powerful statement - it must have incensed him immensely! I am looking forward to reading more about her life, although I have the feeling that I'll want to put my fist through the pages at punch her husband in the face =) I'll try to contain myself.
Oh you will!! I guarantee it. Supposedly after she said this he remarked (although I don't have the exact quote here), "Good God you are an amazing woman."
