"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Girl of the Day - Diana Quick

We're watching the great great great Brideshead Revisited with the Regular Son, who unfortunately thinks dressing like a 1920s Oxfordian fop is just fine, complete with a flower in his lapel!   The follies of youth!  

Anyway, the girl who plays the sister of Sebastian Flyte is Diana Quick, who, like many British actresses I've admired in BBC roles, has almost never been heard from again.
