Joyce Grenfell
Stately as a galleon, I sail across the floor,
Doing the military two-step, as in the days of yore.
Grenfell quotes
Progress everywhere today does seem to come so very heavily disguised as chaos.
They look quite promising in the shop, and not entirely without hope when I get them back into my wardrobe. But then, when I put them on they tend to deteriorate with a very strange rapidity and one feels sorry for them.

Grenfell Joyce quotes
I don't understand Ethel.
I don't, I don't really.
She's one of my very best friends,
Just about the best, nearly.
She's an awfully nice girl, Ethel is,
Dainty and refined,
I mean she'd never do or say
Anything unkind.
But get her inside a stadium
And she seems to go out of her mind.
Grenfell Joyce
Joyce was a wonderful woman, but she wasn't Prime Minister, was she?
Joyce Grenfell quotes
I was allowed to slave for them
For ever and evermore.
Oh, I was allowed to fetch and carry
For my Three Brothers,
Jim and Bob and Harry.
Joyce Grenfell
George - don't do that.
