It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance.

Washington Irving

The directors of Synthank were eating an enormous luncheon to celebrate the launching of their new product. Some of them wore the plastic face-masks popular at the time.

An earlier and less sophisticated generation would have regarded them as beautiful people, apart from their eyes.

Brian Wilson Aldiss

Is there equality before the law? At every stage of the judicial process--facing the policeman, appearing in court, being freed on bond, being sentenced by the judge--the poor person is treated worse than the rich, the black treated worse than the white, the politically or personally odd character is treated worse than the orthodox.

Howard Zinn
