This quote is said by Mrs. Soames to Mrs. Gibbs; it's is a paradox, as the adjectives awful and wonderful are antonyms. This quote revelas the truth about her life...... it's filled with a bit of everything, and there's always a bit of wonderful to find amidst the awful if you take the time to really look for it.
