“One winter night I was called to the bedside of a dying friend.”
"Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board."
Once upon a time...
It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen
On an exceptionally hot evening in early July a young man came out of the garret in which he lodged in S. Place and walked slowly, as though in hesitation, towards K. bridge
