Who Wrote?

1 "Children, if you dare to think Of the greatness, rareness, muchness, Fewness of this precious only Endless world in which you say You live, you think of things like this: Blocks of slate enclosing dappled Red and green, enclosing tawny Yellow nets, enclosing white And black acres of dominoes, Where a neat brown paper parcel Tempts you to untie the string."

2 "'Lazy idle little loafer!' cried the prefect of studies. 'Broke my glasses! An old schoolboy trick! Out with your hand this moment!'

Stephen closed his eyes and held out in the air his trembling hand with the palm upwards... A hot burning stinging tingling blow like the loud crack of a broken stick made his trembling hand crumple together like a leaf in the fire; and at the sound and the pain scalding tears were driven into his eyes."

(Sent in by Jenny Blackburn)

3 "Every schoolmaster after the age of 49 is inclined to flatulence, is apt to swallow frequently, and to puff."
