Quotes Mrs. Lyons: Life is very short, and very fragile. It's easy to let it go by and suddenly find that all the things you meant to do just never got done. When you're young, you think you've got forever. But you're dead for a very long time. That's all.
Dr. Jill Weatherill: Is that advice?
Mrs. Lyons: One of the privileges of old age is you can talk nonsense and get away with it. You'll know if it's advice, or just nonsense.
