Quote I like

"Miss Merryweather shook her head – without disturbing the clinging curls one iota. She pressed both hands to her breast. ‘I knew her heart,’ she declared in a refined whisper. ‘I knew her heart.’ Dido was exceedingly diverted, but more at a loss than ever. ‘And how,’ she asked, ‘did you gain such an intimate knowledge of the lady?’ ‘Why! From books of course!’ cried Miss Merryweather, casting out her arms to indicate her shelves. ‘From the books which she read. There is no surer way of knowing a person. The books which we choose, Miss Kent, are a veritable window upon our souls! A window upon our souls!’" - Anna Dean, 'A Gentleman of Fortune' (Painting: 'Reading Woman' by Pieter Janssens Elinga)
