Quotes

[last lines]

Margaret Schlegel: What did Dolly mean about Howards End?

Henry Wilcox: Mmmm? My poor Ruth, during her last days, scribbled your name on a piece of paper. Knowing her not to be herself, I set it aside. Didn't do wrong, did I?

Helen Schlegel: Did you see the dawn?

Leonard Bast: Yes. It suddenly got light.

Helen Schlegel: And was it wonderful?

Leonard Bast: No.

[girls giggle]

Henry Wilcox: The poor are the poor, and one's sorry for them - but there it is.

Aunt Juley: All the Schlegels are exceptional. They are British to the backbone, of course, but their father was German, which is why they care for literature and art.

Margaret Schlegel: Unlike the Greek, England has no true mythology. All we have are witches and fairies.

Margaret Schlegel: Will you forgive her as you yourself have been forgiven... you have had a mistress; I forgave you. My sister has a lover, you drive her from the house. Why can you not be honest for once in your life? Why can't you say what Helen has done, I have done!

[first lines]

Margaret Schlegel: [reading letter] Dearest Meg, I'm having a glorious time. I like them all. They are the very happiest, jolliest family that you can imagine. The fun of it is that they think me a noodle, and say so - at least, Mr. Wilcox does. Oh Meg, should we ever learn to talk less.

[laughing]

Margaret Schlegel: [speaking of Helen] She's got some sort of madness... as if she's mad!

Margaret Schlegel: I deny it's madness.
