Elizabeth Bowen
“You must show him your monkey: I am sure he will like that.”
Elizabeth Bowen, The House in Paris

Virginia Woolf
“About here, she thought, dabbling her fingers in the water, a ship had sunk, and she muttered, dreamily half asleep, how we perished, each alone.”
Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

Lewis Carroll
“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Aphra Behn
“That perfect tranquility of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library.”
