Jane Gardam
“Thank you," he said. "I'm glad you enjoyed it. If there is anyone here this afternoon whom I have convinced that books are meant to be enjoyed, that English is nothing to do with duty, that it has nothing to do with school - with exercises and homework and ticks and crosses - then I am a happy man." He turned away but then he turned back again and he suddenly simply shouted, he bellowed "To hell with school," he cried. "To hell with school. English is what matters. ENGLISH IS LIFE." The Head grabbed him and led him off to her sitting-room for tea, not looking too thrilled, and we were let out and I went flying home.”
Jane Gardam, A Long Way from Verona

Muriel Spark
“I had a sense he was offering things abominable to me, like decaffeinated coffee or coitus interruptus”
Muriel Spark, A Far Cry from Kensington
