Ella Quotes
« on: July 02, 2010, 04:41:46 PM »
I'm looking for any interesting quotes said by Ella. You can post either single quotes or exchanges between her and another person. They can be funny, serious, weird, whatever works. Thanks!
Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies. - Groucho Marx

Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the wordless tune, and never stops at all. - Emily Dickinson

"She drove me away like a dog ! Poor Nicky ! Poor Russia !" Ella said that after her last meeting with her sister Alicky, Tsarina of Russia. They never met again.

That is intertesting I never heard that quote before. I thought the conversation between them was quite private.

Sorry, I'm so new to the AP! What did Ella say that made Alexandra angry?
You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we

Welcome. Ella & Rasputin were enemies, she think of him as the devil.

Ahhh, ok. I don't know much at all about Ella, more just Alix, but I knew they were very good friends up until Ella said that. Do you know what her exact quote, or something like it, was when she confronted Alix? Thanks!

The conversation was not known in its entirety. When Ella brought up the subject of Rasputin, she hit a brick wall. Ella said saidly "It might be better had I not come." Alicky said icily "Yes". She called for a motor to send Ella back. They never saw each other again.

Ahh, ok. It's such a shame---Ella and Alix were best friends!

They remained sisters, but badly strained in relations. Alicky was a mother trying to save her son, she felt Ella did not understood her. VMH understood Alicky's anguish while Ella (who was childless) did not.

I thought that quote came from a book… Give me time to look for the website where I found it.

I wonder if Ella knew that Rasputin was the “only one” who could cure Alexei (or the one whose prayers for Alexei could be heard by God). If she did know, maybe, she would have not asked Alix to let go of Rasputin.

To Ella, Rasputin was pure evil. She once complained she cannot pray for some reason, and somebody saw Rasputin slip into the church. Ella only began to feel peace again once he left. It would seem that even his presence was disruptive to Ella.

Can you please provide the precise source for this information?

Thanks
