Margo. The 'T' is silent as in Harlow.
Asquith quotes
From the happy expression on their faces you might have supposed that they welcomed the war. I have met with men who loved stamps, and stones, and snakes, but I could not imagine any man loving war.
Asquith
My dear old friend King George V told me he would never have died but for that vile doctor, Lord Dawson of Penn.




Asquith Margot quotes
Through the pages of [her book] Lay Sermons walk the great. I don't say that Margot Asquith actually permits us to rub elbows with them ourselves, but she willingly shows us her own elbow, which has been, so to say, honed on the mighty.
Asquith Margot
Lloyd George? There is no Lloyd George. There is a marvellous brain; but if you were to shut him in a room and look through the keyhole there would be nobody there.
Margot Asquith quotes
He's very clever, but sometimes his brains go to his head.
Margot Asquith
She tells enough white lies to ice a wedding cake.
Asquith Margot quotes
Kitchener, a great man or a great poster?
Asquith
... no matter where she takes off from, she brings the discourse back to Margot Asquith. Such singleness of purpose is met but infrequently.
Asquith Margot
Rich men's houses are seldom beautiful, rarely comfortable, and never original. It is a constant source of surprise to people of moderate means to observe how little a big fortune contributes to Beauty.
Margot Asquith
The affair between Margot Asquith and Margot Asquith will live as one of the prettiest love stories in all literature.
