Eloise Bridgerton Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Cressida Cowper: You are unlike many people, Eloise. How is it you have the courage to be so different?

Eloise Bridgerton: It is not courage. I simply cannot understand why others do not see things the way I do.

John Stirling: May I join you a moment?

Francesca Bridgerton: I should like that.

(They sit next to each other, smiling, rest of the Bridgertons watching them from afar...)

Gregory Bridgerton: She does not speak to him.

Eloise Bridgerton: I am in awe. I thought one had to use wit or banter to dissuade a suitor. But simple silence is radically more effective.

Hyacinth Bridgerton: Perhaps they are enjoying themselves.

Violet Bridgerton: But how will they know each other if they do not speak?

Cressida Cowper: I have come to a decision as to who shall be my husband.

Eloise Bridgerton: Splendid. And does this man know he is to be your husband?

Cressida Cowper: Lord Debling.

Eloise Bridgerton: The naturalist?

Cressida Cowper: You say that with such surprise.

Eloise Bridgerton: It is only... you do not seem to care for nature. Or for animals. Both of which are apparently his great passion.

Cressida Cowper: I care very dearly for animals. I love a good fur.

Eloise Bridgerton: Oh, I would not tell him that.

Cressida Cowper: Do not trouble me with the details.

Eloise Bridgerton: When you spread gossip about someone, it will inevitably end up in Whistledown. You must know that. But perhaps that was your goal in communicating the secret I told you in confidence. Or can you really just not help being cruel?

Cressida Cowper: I did not communicate your secret. But I did notice Miss Livingston whispering around the room after hovering nearby. You were rather indiscreet when you told me about Penelope. Perhaps if you were more decided about your former friendship, you would not have felt the need to gossip. I do appreciate your concern about cruelty, but perhaps you should like to find a looking glass rather than looking at me.

Young Lady (about the queen): She is leaving. She has barely spoken to any of us.

Eloise Bridgerton: Finally. Now I can stuff my mouth with chocolates without fear of appearing impolite. Excuse me.

Young Lady #1: Eloise, do you have any special talents with which you hope to impress the queen?

Eloise Bridgerton: Talents? No. Unless you consider a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Like the time I tried to tell the French tutor he was nice, instead, called him "une chouette."

Young Lady #2: An owl! Oh no.

Cressida Cowper: Mr. Beaufort? He is rather furry.

Eloise Bridgerton: Unfortunately, owls have feathers, not fur, so even if I had wanted to insult the poor fellow, I'd have failed at that as well. Yes. Well, in truth, I cannot blame my teachers for my lack of talent. It is not their fault I am such a troublesome student.

Young Lady #3: I think we have found your talent.

Young Lady #4: Indeed. You are a most entertaining speaker. Do not stop.

Cressida Cowper: It has been difficult to find a husband. It has been more difficult still to find a friend. I've not had many since my debut. Not real ones. I did as a girl. But the season has a way of coming between young ladies, pitting us against one another. I suppose I've fallen prey to it... once or twice.

Eloise Bridgerton: Or thrice. But you are right. Society does not seek to forge affections amongst us. I... I thought I was the only one who noticed.

Eloise Bridgerton: You genuinely enjoy embroidery?

Young Lady #1: Of course I do. There is simply so much one can do with it.

Eloise Bridgerton: For example?

Young Lady #1: Since you have asked... the stem stitch, tried and true. The straight stitch, running stitch, chain stitch.

Young Lady #2: The French knot, if one was feeling bold.

Young Lady #1: Oh, yes! The feather stitch, the fly stitch. Ooh! The detached chain stitch.

Young Lady #3: Do you not have a favorite, Miss Eloise?

Eloise Bridgerton: Wha... The... uh, shift stitch.

Cressida Cowper: I'm not familiar with that one.

Eloise Bridgerton: It's the one that shifts this conversation perhaps to something besides embroidery.

Young Lady #1: Oh! A jest... How clever.

Eloise Bridgerton: Cressida surprised me this summer. She showed me kindness in the country when no one else would.

Colin Bridgerton: And what of Penelope?

Eloise Bridgerton: We have simply grown apart. Lady Whistledown nearly ruined me last season. I lost the battle, and I have no appetite for the war. I've joined the winning side. Not unlike you, I take it? Or is this truly the new you?

Colin Bridgerton: Hmm. A man cannot tell his secrets.

Eloise Bridgerton: Mmm... Must be lonely.

Eloise Bridgerton (to Pen): I do not even know you. I look at you now, and all I feel is pity for you. Sequestered here in this very room, writing your secret little scandal sheet, tarnishing everyone in town because you are too scared to stand up for yourself in reality. You are something, Penelope. An insipid wallflower, indeed.

Eloise Bridgerton: Art Academy not going so well?

Benedict Bridgerton: I am an impostor, El. Turns out Anthony himself bought my seat at that table.

Eloise Bridgerton: That does not mean you would not have been accepted on your own. I, too, know what it is like to feel oneself an imposter. Parading around ballrooms in feathered frocks, pretending to be someone I am not.

Theo Sharpe: You've come quite a long way to ask me something, so go on.

Eloise Bridgerton: I have thoughts...

Theo Sharpe: I can see how that might pose a problem for someone in your world.

Eloise Bridgerton: Thoughts I would like to share... with you.

Theo Sharpe: And are you not sharing them now?

Eloise Bridgerton: What I am failing to say is that often, when I read something new or interesting or provoking, it is you who crosses my mind. It is you I would like to speak with about those thoughts.

Theo Sharpe: I see.

Eloise Bridgerton: Uh... And so I am wondering if you might also have thoughts of me when you think.

Theo Sharpe: I have read all of these. (hands her a small pile of books)

Eloise Bridgerton: And?

Theo Sharpe: And... I set them aside for you. I thought perhaps you might share your thoughts on them.

Eloise Bridgerton (about Theo): I know it is... odd, but I had assumed ours was merely an intellectual bond, a friendship based in like-minded thought and rigorous conversation. But what if you are right? What if he feels more?

Penelope Featherington: I never said... El, do you want him to feel more?

Eloise Bridgerton: My feelings about his feelings do not matter if I do not know for a fact what it is he is feeling.

Portia Featherington: Nothing makes the ton come alive like a fresh scandal.

Jack Featherington: All eyes and ears seem to be open for the freshest detail. I suppose all we must do now is redirect their attention.

Eloise Bridgerton: Perhaps the archbishop's talk of lifelong covenants overwhelmed her. Perhaps she realized that marriage is, in fact, a prison for women.

Colin Bridgerton: Ugh. Must you always be so... you?

Eloise Bridgerton: How else should I be? Married and silent?

Bridgerton Quotes

Top 10 Quotes by Eloise Bridgerton from Bridgerton Series

  1. It must be taxing. The game of pretend that you feel you must endlessly maintain. (Eloise Bridgerton to Daphne – 1×02)
  2. Whistledown is a woman, therefore she has nothing, and still she writes. You’re a man, therefore you have everything. You are able to do whatever you want. So do it. Be bold. At least that way I can live vicariously through you. (Eloise Bridgerton to Benedict – 1×03)
  3. I suppose I should thank you. For being so perfect… so I do not have to be. (Eloise Bridgerton to Daphne – Ep. 1×08)
  4. Just another reminder of how trapped I am. I can feel people’s eyes on me. Every time I walk into a ballroom, I know they are comparing me to Daphne. She was so good at being the diamond and it made my mother so happy. I can never live up to that. I do not want to live up to that, but it does not make it any easier to know you are constantly disappointing people just by walking into a room. (Eloise Bridgerton to Pen – Ep. 2×01)
  5. Your assumptions are not the least bit surprising. After all, a woman is allowed to have but two interests. Marriage, or spewing slander about her peers, apparently. It’d never occur to you that I am, in fact, hoping to find the writer so that we may discuss much more intellective matters. The rights of woman. The exploration of her mind, a mind which, I can already discern, is far, far superior to yours. Is the shock you seem to be displaying at present due to the fact that I appear well-read and articulate? (Eloise Bridgerton to Theo – Ep. 2×02)
  6. Eloise Bridgerton: Our feeble minds might collapse if we put too many ideas in them. (Eloise Bridgerton to Lord Morrison – Ep. 2×04)
  7. Next time you compliment a woman, at least try not to insult her entire sex in the process. (Eloise Bridgerton to Lord Morrison – Ep. 2×04)
  8. It is a fool’s errand to try to make an impression on those in good society who have not a single original thought. And what good is it anyway to make a name for oneself if it is only to be written on dance cards? (Eloise Bridgerton to Pen – Ep 2×06)
  9. How else should I be? Married and silent? (Eloise Bridgerton to Colin – Ep. 2×06)
  10. That does not mean you would not have been accepted on your own. I, too, know what it is like to feel oneself an imposter. Parading around ballrooms in feathered frocks, pretending to be someone I am not. (Eloise Bridgerton to Benedict – Ep. 2×08)
