- "Warlock o' Glenwarlock", George MacDonald.
He had crossed roads and lanes, with a bitter avoidance of men's tracks; but now the strong instinct of self- preservation came out, and his aching limbs, his weary heart, giving great pants and beats for a time, and then ceasing altogether till a mist swam and quivered before his aching eyes, warned him that he must find some shelter and food, or lie down to die.- "Sylvia's Lovers -- Complete", Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell.
