   ‘It was dark and she was two door doors down, so what she actually saw was…?’
  
‘Silhouette of a tall figure in a cloak, carrying a holdall.’

Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) – The Silkworm

. . .

Virginia Woolf – Orlando: A Biography

  4. "Don't ever let me in a room with that man again, because only one of us will come out alive........And it won't be him!" [David Baldacci - The Target]. I laughed when I read this as I have quite often said it in th past when blowing off steam :) Obviously, futile words :) I love David Baldacci books.
