Wise Women Friday: Mrs. Patrick Campbell

Words of Wisdom from the English stage actress actress Mrs. Patrick Campbell (1840-1940):

It doesn't matter what you do in the bedroom 
as long as you don't do it on the street and frighten the horses.*  

Apropos of nothing.  Just good general advice from a woman who would probably know.   George Bernard Shaw wrote "Pygmalion's" Eliza Doolittle for her, and when George Bernard Shaw writes the part of Eliza Doolittle for you, I think we can safely assume that you know a thing or two about life -- including how to frighten horses.  

*Quoted in Kathryn Petras and Ross Petras' The Whole World Book of Quotations (Reading Mass: Addison-Wesley, 1995).

When I realized she lived to see a 100 I wanted to view a picture of her. She, like many of todays young actors enjoyed the company of a pocket pooch.

Which begs the question, what was she doing in the bedroom that would scare horses?

GB Shaw was madly in love with her (from afar, which I believe was always the case with GBS). Their correspondence is legendary.

You two always make my blog better. PA: the link is perfect. I don't know why I never think of these things. Isn't she lovely? And don't you love how she's not a size zero? AH: I most appreciate the tidbits about Mrs. Campbell. Poor GB Shaw -- always to love from afar. Have you read their correspondence? Was she much of a thinker? I wonder what they wrote about. Perhaps I'll investigate.

Hmm. There were horses in the street but I don't suppose there were horses in the bedroom. Unless you were Catherine the Great. And that was a myth anyway, wasn't it? And were those horses scared?

And yet, we call her "Mrs. Patrick Campbell?" Sounds like this lady had a personality of her own.

Barbra: I know. The lack of first name is bothersome, isn't it. Yet it's amazing how she holds her own even subsumed under her husband's identity.
