Mquest-- Christmas 2005
A friend is a gift you give yourself.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The gentleman began to chat with her about Hallow Eve and the rainy weather. He
supposed the bag was full of good things for the little ones and said it was only right that the youngsters should enjoy themselves while they were young. Maria agreed with him and favoured him with demure nods and hems. He was very nice with her, and when she was getting out at the Canal Bridge she thanked him and bowed, and he bowed to her and raised his hat and smiled agreeably, and while she was going up along the terrace, bending her tiny head under the rain, she thought how easy it was to know a gentleman even when he has a drop taken.
James Joyce -- Clay
