unearths some literary gems.
From The Rich Die Hard, by Beverley Nichols:
"We were practically swooning... even the birds and the rabbits."
"I fancy that you exaggerate," commented Mr. Green in a voice as dry as a rusk.
"Of course, I exaggerate like mad. It is part of my charm."
"As it is, you seem to have come to a full stop. Don't you?"
"When I am investigating a problem," he said, "I do not recognize full-stops. However, I am occasionally compelled to acknowledge the existence of a semi-colon."
"I warned you that my theory was far-fetched."
Mr. Green sighed. "Sometimes the truest theories are those that are the furthest fetched, even if they have to be fetched from very unpleasant places."
