What Would The Dowager Countess Say

+comment

This season of Downton Abbey is over, and I already miss Maggie Smith. Her character, Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, is by far my favorite thing about the show. Each week she says the perfect thing at the perfect time. Yes, creator and writer Julian Fellowes is giving her these incredible lines, but Maggie Smith so completely owns them that I feel they could not be said by anyone else.

As you embark on your weekend, I suggest your remember these nuggets of wisdom from the Dowager Countess:

On Wit:
