- "Somehow Good", William de Morgan.
It was difficult to guess his age- whether he were a young man who looked old or an old man who looked young; it seemed to prove nothing, as against other things, that he was bald and, as might have been said, slightly stale, or, more delicately perhaps, dry: there was such a fine little fidget of preoccupied life in him, and his eyes, at moments- though it was an appearance they could suddenly lose- were as candid and clear as those of a pleasant boy.- "The Wings of the Dove, Volume 1 of 2", Henry James.
