"Kissing don't last: cookery do!" George Meredith The Ordeal of Richard Feverel
"I like breakfast-time better than any other moment in the day," said Mr. Irwine. "No dust has settled on one's mind then, and it presents a clear mirror to the rays of things." George Eliot Adam Bede
One can say everything best over a meal. George Eliot Adam Bede
People who love downy peaches are apt not to think of the stone, and sometimes jar their teeth terribly against it. George Eliot Adam Bede
Such young unfurrowed souls roll to meet each other like two velvet peaches that touch softly and are at rest; they mingle as easily as two brooklets that ask for nothing but to entwine themselves and ripple with ever-interlacing curves in the leafiest hiding-places. George Eliot Adam Bede
"Fan the sinking flame of hilarity with the wing of friendship; and pass the rosy wine." Charles Dickens The Old Curiosity Shop
Mr. Tulkinghorn, sitting in the twilight by the open window, enjoys his wine. As if it whispered to him of its fifty years of silence and seclusion, it shuts him up the closer. More impenetrable than ever, he sits, and drinks, and mellows as it were in secrecy, pondering at that twilight hour on all the mysteries he knows. Charles Dickens Bleak House
The host had gone below to the cellar, and had brought up bottles of ruby, straw-coloured, and golden drinks, which had ripened long ago in lands where no fogs are, and had since lain slumbering in the shade. Sparkling and tingling after so long a nap, they pushed at their corks to help the corkscrew (like prisoners helping rioters to force their gates), and danced out gaily. Charles Dickens The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Seasonable tokens are about. Red berries shine here and there in the lattices of Minor Canon Corner; Mr. and Mrs. Tope are daintily sticking sprigs of holly into the carvings and sconces of the Cathedral stalls, as if they were sticking them into the coat-button-holes of the Dean and Chapter. Lavish profusion is in the shops: particularly in the articles of currants, raisins, spices, candied peel, and moist sugar. Charles Dickens The Mystery of Edwin Drood
"I see that a man cannot give himself up to drinking without being miserable one-half his days and mad the other." Anne Bronte The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
