Eloise Bridgerton Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Eloise Bridgerton (to Pen): 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?

(Colin is hangover and grumpy...)

Violet Bridgerton (to Benedict): Whatever you have done to your brother, undo it.

Colin Bridgerton: I may never reach your capacity for drink, Brother.

Benedict Bridgerton: It's a simple remedy. If you continue to drink, there can be no after-effects.

Eloise Bridgerton: If only you would use your powers for good.

Eloise Bridgerton (to Lord Morrison): Next time you compliment a woman, at least try not to insult her entire sex in the process.

Eloise Bridgerton: "What worries you, masters you."

Lord Morrison: Ah. You have read Locke?

Eloise Bridgerton: I have. Have you?

Lord Morrison: Yes. It is required of all men past a certain age, surely. Not so much for young ladies.

Eloise Bridgerton: Because our feeble minds might collapse if we put too many ideas in them.

Lord Morrison: For most of the ladies I have met, that seems to be true. Many of them cannot even articulate a thought.

Eloise Bridgerton: Don't you think it's because they haven't been offered the same opportunities?

Benedict Bridgerton: The Royal Schools have accepted me as a student. I got in!

Colin Bridgerton: I thought they were not the arbiters of taste?

Benedict Bridgerton: They must see great promise in my work. Oh my! (opens the windows and leans out of it) You shall all bear witness to my talents!

Colin Bridgerton: Shh! It's the middle of the night!

Eloise Bridgerton: He will be as insufferable now as you.

Eloise Bridgerton: Was it your choice you never married? My brothers tell me I have a habit of being rather direct. But everyone tells me it is fate worse than death to end up a spinster. But you seem perfectly content with your situation.

Kate Sharma: You must know, it is hardly ideal. The world is not exactly welcoming to an unmarried woman. There seems to be no place in society for us, except at the edge of things.

Eloise Bridgerton: That rather seems to be society's flaw, not a woman's.

Kate Sharma: Indeed, it does.

Eloise Bridgerton: I am not here in search of gossip.

Theo Sharpe: No? Private information about the season's most eligible bachelor, then? Mmm?

Eloise Bridgerton: 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 Pen): 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.

Hyacinth Bridgerton: I think Eloise would make a brilliant diamond.

Violet Bridgerton: I could not agree more, Hyacinth. Perhaps Her Majesty will take note at her ball tomorrow night.

Eloise Bridgerton (to Hyacinth): I despise you.

(Violet and Hyacinth laugh)

Eloise Bridgerton: Swept away by many a nimble-footed young lady, Brother?

Anthony Bridgerton: I can still barely feel my toes. I thought you ladies were taught to dance.

Eloise Bridgerton: I thought you gentlemen capable of worthwhile conversation. How sad both of our hopes were dashed.

Eloise Bridgerton: I look like a prize calf, trussed up for auction.

(Benedict moos at her)

Benedict Bridgerton: Eloise... are you Lady Whistledown? You're an accomplished writer, always scribbling in that diary of yours. You certainly know everyone else's business. You have more opinions than anyone else I know in London. You would have my full support and admiration either way, Sister. So... is it you?

Eloise Bridgerton: No. Though if it were... do you honestly think that I'd admit it?

Eloise Bridgerton (to Benedict): 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.

Daphne Bridgerton: Yes, Eloise, there... are perhaps darker turns in these woods than we've been taught to expect. There is light to be found at their end. And I know... one day... we both will find it.

Eloise Bridgerton: It must be taxing.

Daphne Bridgerton: What?

Eloise Bridgerton: The game of pretend that you feel you must endlessly maintain.
