“Everything begins and ends at exactly the right time and place.”
Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock

“Although we are necessarily concerned, in a chronicle of events, with physical action by the light of day, history suggests that the human spirit wanders farthest in the silent hours between midnight and dawn. Those dark fruitful hours, seldom recorded, whose secret flowerings breed peace and war, loves and hates, the crowning or uncrowning of heads.”
Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock

“Good morning girls, boomed the gracious plummy voice imported from Kensington.”
Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock
