JEFFREY FARNOL
English novelist
(1878 - 1952)
  CHECK READING LIST (3)  

John Barty, ex-champion of England and landlord of the "Coursing Hound," sat screwed around in his chair with his eyes yet turned to the door that had closed after the departing lawyer fully five minutes ago, and his eyes were wide and blank, and his mouth (grim and close-lipped as a rule) gaped, becoming aware of which, he closed it with a snap, and passed a great knotted gist across his brow.
      - The Amateur Gentleman (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

As I sat of an early summer morning in the shade of a tree, eating fried bacon with a tinker, the thought came to me that I might some day write a book of my own: a book that should treat of the roads and by-roads, of trees, and wind in lonely places, of rapid brooks and lazy streams, of the glory of dawn, the glow of evening, and the purple solitude of night; a book of wayside inns and sequestered taverns; a book of country things and ways and people. And the thought pleased me much.
      - The Broad Highway (ante scriptum)
        [Books (First Lines)]

"'And to my nephew, Maurice Vibart, I bequeath the sum of twenty thousand pounds in the fervent hope that it may help him to the devil within the year, or as soon after as may be.'"
      - The Broad Highway (ch. I)
        [Books (First Lines)]

In the writing of books, as all the world knows, two things are above all other things essential--the one is to know exactly when and where to leave off, and the other to be equally certain when and where to begin.
      - The Definite Object (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]
