 “… a tiny room, furnished in early MFI, of which every surface was covered in china ornaments and plaster knick-knacks whose only virtue was that they were small, and therefore of limited individual horribleness. Cumulatively, they were like an infestation. Little vases, ashtrays, animals, shepherdesses, tramps, boots, tobys, ruined castles, civic shields of seaside towns, thimbles, bambis, pink goggle-eyed puppies sitting up and begging, scooped-out swans plainly meant to double as soap dishes, donkeys with empry panniers which ought to have held pin-cushions or perhaps bunches of violets — all jostled together in a sad visual cacophony of bad taste and birthday presents and fading holiday memories, too many to be loved, justifying themselves by their sheer weight of numbers as ‘collections’ do.”

“Instead, the Daily Mail’s editor picked out only the ‘brightest’ items of news, digested them, and rewrote them so as to turn them into ‘stories’.

 “The Yorkshire was something of a landmark, and facing it across the river was another, Botterill’s Horse Repository, a startling and ornate building in red and yellow brick. Here the gentlemen who rode or drove into York could leave their horses. The stalls were arranged on several storeys, with ramps leading up from floor to floor – the equine equivalent, Teddy supposed, of one of those new blocks of ‘flats’ one heard about in London – and if York grew any more crowded, they would all end up living on top of each other, like the horses, he thought.”

 “One of the early reasons for Atherton’s devotion to Slider had been that Slider had never, from the first meeting, looked at him askance. Slider had his countryman father’s view that God had made all creatures different for His own purposes. A horse was not a cat and a cat was not a dog, and only a fool would want them to be.”

One Final Bonus – Cynthia Harrod-Eagles Quote 

“True, Mama, but he’ll find it a difficult job to govern the country with nothing but the High Tories to support him. And whatever you think of their politics, Huskisson and Palmerston are very able men the country can ill afford to lose. William Lamb was doing a good job in Ireland, too.’ ‘Poor William Lamb,’ Lucy said — his name always seemed to couple itself with the epithet quite automatically. ‘He needs office to keep his mind from his domestic troubles.’ ‘Sendin’ him to Ireland was goin’ rather too far, though,’ Theakston commented solemnly. ‘No good cuttin’ off a man’s head to cure him of a headache.’ ‘Well, he’d have been back soon enough anyway,’ said Lucy. ‘That drunken ruin of a father of his can’t last much longer, and then he’ll be taking his seat in the Lords as Lord Melbourn.’ ‘His sister thinks he’ll be Prime Minister one day,’ said her husband. ‘Said so to Mrs Arbuthnot yesterday.’ Lucy was dismissive. ‘She would say something like that!
