"'You don't find gossipy put-downs' in [Diana's] writing, Alexander [Vreeland] says. 'She really didn't say things unless it could be positive; she wasn't a big critic. She wasn't trashing people, and she wasn't speaking badly about things. If she went to somebody's home and she didn't like what it looked like, but they had a beautiful bouquet of flowers, she would just rave about how beautiful the flowers were. She would find something to speak about that was positive, and just let the rest go.'" -VOGUE
