leisured young women take note

“…For the rest of 1912 and the first half of 1913, I went to more dances, paid calls, skated and tobogganed, played a good deal of bridge and a great deal of tennis and golf, had music lessons and acted in amateur theatricals; in fact I passed my days in all these conventional pursuits with which the leisured young woman of every generation has endeavoured to fill the time she is not qualified to use.”
—from Testament of Youth, by Vera Brittain
