    When he became all eye when one was present, and all memory when one was gone; when the youth becomes the watcher of windows, and studious of a glove, a veil, a ribbon, or the wheels of a carriage, when no place is too solitary, and none too silent.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    And calmly, as if indifferent quite,
    You would close your term here, up and be gone
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
