1 "When the last of gloaming's gone When the world is drowned in Night, Then swims up the great round Moon, Washing with her borrowed light Twig, stone, grass-blade-pin-point bright Everything tiniest in sight."

2 "Early the next morning Edward set off to the appointed rendezvous with Oswald Partridge. The Clump Royal, as it was called, from the peculiar size and beauty of the oaks, was about seven miles from the cottage; and at the hour and time indicated Edward, with his gun in his hand and Smoker lying beside him, was leaning against one of those monarchs of the forest. He did not wait long. Oswald Partridge, similarly provided, made his appearance, and Edward advanced to meet him."

3 "The year is 1910 - or 1940, but it is all the same. You are at Greyfriars, a rosy-cheeked boy of 14 in posh, tailor-made clothes, sitting down to tea in your study in the Remove passage after an exciting game of football ... The king is on his throne and the pound is worth a pound ...

Everything is safe, solid and unquestionable. Everything will be the same for ever and ever."
