The Wit and Wisdom of Downton Abbey
The Wit and Wisdom of Downton Abbey | Jessica Fellowes
8 posts | 4 read | 15 to read
"Come war and peace Downton still stands and the Crawleys are still in it." Downton Abbey is loved the world over for its fabulous costumes, beautiful scenery, wonderful characters and intricate plot lines, but what keeps millions of us coming back time after time is the stellar quality of the writing. With each stroke of his pen Julian Fellowes seems to gift us with a cuttingly dry quip from the Dowager Countess, a perfectly timed word of wisdom from Mrs Patmore or a touchingly nostalgic pronouncement from Carson. Here in The Wit and Wisdom of Downton Abbey, Jessica Fellowes has gathered together her favorite quotes from the complete Downton Abbey oeuvre to take each of us back to the most memorable moments from the show and ensure we are armed with the very best ripostes should we ever need to chastise an impertinent lady's maid.

I‘m giving this to my mom today as one of her birthday gifts, but I couldn‘t resist reading it first. If you‘re a fan of the show, you‘ll love this book. It‘s a very quick read, full of some of the best quotes from the show and bits about the characters.

My mom‘s birthday is on Saturday and she‘s a huge Downton Abbey fan, so this is one of the gifts I‘m giving her. 😊 (I‘m a little tempted to read it first)

Earl grey tea and scones are the perfect pairing, sounds like something the Crawley family would have for tea.

The tagged book is a collection of quotes and scenes from the series, collated by Julian Fellowes‘ niece.
