‘I can see now where the geese are flying over the lilies, where yesterday I was confused, I took the lilies for swans. Soon I shall see where the geese are headed when they gather to fly over the looking-glass’ – Lord Marchmain, Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh

‘The fire in the grate looked impish- demoniacally funny- as if it did not care in the least about her strait. The fender grinned idly, as
if it too did not care. The light from the water-bottle was merely engaged in a chromatic problem. All material objects around announced their irresponsibility with terrible iteration.’ the beginning of Chapter 35, Tess of the d’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
