Joseph Conrad
“The hair of his face, on the contrary, carroty and flaming, resembled a growth of copper wire clipped short to the line of the lip; while, no matter how close he shaved, fiery metallic gleams passed, when he moved his head, over the surface of his cheeks.”
Joseph Conrad, Tales Of The Sea

Garcilaso de la Vega (poet)
“With this idea, being a man with long experience of the sea (and they certainly have a great advantage over other men in any sort of task)...”
GarciLaso De la Vega, Royal Commentaries of the Incas and General History of Peru, Part One
