“...vicinity to the sea is desirable, because it is easier to do nothing by the sea than anywhere else, and because bathing and basking on the shore cannot be considered an employment but only an apotheosis of loafing. ("Expiation")”
E.F. Benson, The Collected Ghost Stories of E.F. Benson

“The hours of the morning between breakfast and lunch were the time which the inhabitants of Riseholme chiefly devoted to spying on each other.”
E.F. Benson, Queen Lucia

“An idea so luminous flashed across her brain that she almost thought the room had leaped into light.”
E.F. Benson
