1. "It is eighteen years ago, almost to the day - A sunny day with the leaves just turning, The touch-lines new-ruled - since I watched you play Your first game of football, then, like a satellite Wrenched from its orbit, go drifting away Behind a scatter of boys."

There was nothing else in the room at all except a dead bluebottle on the window-sill.

"Nothing there!" said Peter, and they all trooped out again - all except Lucy. She stayed behind because she thought it would be worthwhile trying the door of the wardrobe, even though she felt almost sure that it would be locked. To her surprise it opened quite easily, and two mothballs dropped out."

3 "Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon."
