In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.

Enid Bagnold was born in Rochester, Kent, England. She was a British novelist and playwright, known for the 1935 story National Velvet. She wrote about her hospital experiences in A Diary Without Dates, and about her experiences as a driver in The Happy Foreigner. Two quite different novels are The Squire, which conveys the mood of expectancy in a household awaiting the birth of a child, and The Loved and Envied, a study of a woman facing the approach of old age. As a playwright, she achieved great success with The Chalk Garden; a motion-picture version was produced in 1964. Her other stage works include Four Plays and A Matter of Gravity.
