But Miss Mapp would have liked, especially when she went to take her rest afterwards on the big sofa in the garden- room, to have had somebody to talk to, for her brain seethed with conjectures as to what had happened, was happening and would happen, and discussion was the best method of simplifying a problem, of narrowing it down to the limits of probability, whereas when she was alone now with her own imaginings, the most fantastic of them seemed plausible.- "Miss Mapp", Edward Frederic Benson.
