Quotable: Busman's Honeymoon

"Well it seems a miracle to be able to look forward to--to--to see all the minutes in front of one come hopping along with something marvelous in them, instead of just saying, 'Well, that one didn't actually hurt, and the next may be quite bearable if only something beastly doesn't come bouncing out."

--Harriet to Peter, Dorothy Sayer's The Busman's Honeymoon
