Quotable: Brideshead

I don't want to make it easier for you," I said; "I hope your heart may break; but I do understand."

The avalanche was down, the hillside swept bare behind it; the last echoes died on the white slopes; the new mound glittered and lay still in the silent valley.

--Charles, in Brideshead Revisited, by Evelyn Waugh
