    • Mrs Bradley: The feminine virtue of self-acrifice is entirely foreign to my nature.

    • Mrs Bradley: [ on "Lady Chatterley's Lover" ] Have a read of this, George; I think it might amuse you.

    • Mrs Bradley: It puts that Marie Stopes book I gave you in the shade.
      Mrs Bradley is referring to the famous campaigner for women's rights, the Scottish author and doctor, whose 1918 books Married Love and Wise Parenthood called for women to be given choice over their own bodies with regard to sex and parenthood. They caused a storm when they were published, but the Marie Stopes Organisation is now known the world over, as a leading family planning and health service.
