I remember riding a bus in the middle of the night during a bitter snowstorm in the early months of 1976. The whole world spoke the same language, using the same words. In order to talk to each other, we have to have words, and that’s all right.

What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing?-it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. (Jack Kerouac, On The Road). No complaints, I guess, but then there never are in polite company, are there?(Nick Hornby, "High Fidelity")

A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. (Carl Reiner). On and on we went, the distances between the stations getting progressively longer, the bored teenage boys were not making slurping sounds to one of their girlfriends, a tall pimpled beauty in a Lycra skirt who took out a book and busied herself flipping through the pages, while a babushka waved a fist the size of a beefsteak tomato at the boys and shouted something about their "unsocialist upbringing." (Gary Shteyngart, The Russian Debutante's Handbook).

She rubs her face, a residue of mascara sticky on her eyelashes, and driving her crazy. When she played the role of pretty young thing who seemed perfectly in place at the Radisson in Szczecin, she somehow grabbed a tube of waterproof mascara, and she hates mascara, and she had no makeup remover because she's rather much a stranger to cosmetics.
(Patricia Cornwell, Blowfly)

One hand went slowly up to her teeth and her teeth bit at her funny thumb. There were purple smears under her eyes and her face was gnawed white by nerves. (Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep)

There are very few of us who have heart enough to be really in love without encouragement. In nine cases out of ten a women had better show more affection than she feels. (Jane Austin. Pride and Prejudice).

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. He will hold her, when his passion shall have spent its novel force, something better than his dog, a little dearer than his horse.

We must not be too positive yet, said I. If we find that this same quality when it exists in the individual can equally be identified with justice then we can at once give our assent; there will be no more to be said; otherwise we shall have to look further.

He is reading for the Bar, and while he would be the first to admit that he hasn't yet got a complete toe-hold on the Law of Great Britain he had a sort of notion that oiling into a perfect stranger's semi-detached villa on the pretext of pruning the parrot was a tort or misdemeanour, if not actual barratry or soccage in fief or something like that.

His life can be summed up in this immortal sentence: “I don’t know if you happen to know what the word “excesses” means, but these are what Pongo’s Uncle Fred from the country, when in London, invariably commits.”
