Daily Dose

From The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, by Muriel Spark


"Cleopatra knew nothing of the team spirit if you read your Shakespeare.  Take Helen of Troy.  And the Queen of England, it is true she attends international sport, but she has to, it is all empty show, she is concerned only with the King's health and antiques."

From Chapter 4
