MRS. ANN WARD RADCLIFFE
English novelist
(1764 - 1823)

Governments always tend to want not really a free press but a managed or well-conducted one.
      - [Newspapers]

Last of the hours that track the fading day.
      - [Twilight]

But hark! what shriek of death comes in the gale,
  And in the distant ray what glimmering sail
    Bends to the storm?--Now sinks the note of fear!
      Ah! wretched mariners!--no more shall day
        Unclose his cheering eye to light ye on your way!
      - Mysteries of Udolpho--Shipwreck
        [Shipwreck]

Lightnings, that show the vast and foamy deep,
  The rending thunders, as they onward roll,
    The loud winds, that o'er the billows sweep--
      Shake the firm nerve, appal the bravest soul!
      - Mysteries of Udolpho--The Mariner (st. 9)
        [Storms]

Fate sits on these dark battlements, and frowns;
  And as the portals open to receive me,
    Her voice, in sullen echoes, through the courts,
      Tells of a nameless deed.
      - The Motto to "The Mysteries of Udolpho"
        [Fate]
