“A house with old furniture has no need of ghosts to be haunted.”
Hope Mirrlees, Lud-in-the-Mist

“Reason I know, is only a drug, and, as such, its effects are never permanent. But, like the juice of the poppy, it often gives a temporary relief.”
Hope Mirrlees, Lud-in-the-Mist

“Pride and resentment are not indigenous to the human heart; and perhaps it is due to the gardener's innate love of the exotic that we take such pains to make them thrive.”
Hope Mirrlees, Lud-in-the-Mist
