H. Lawrence They seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods. ~ Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton But Duty has a trick of behaving unexpectedly--something like a heavy friend whom we have amiably asked to visit us, and who breaks his leg within our gates. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot Surprises, like misfortunes, seldom come alone. ~ Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens The unexpected has happened so continually in my life that it has ceased to deserve the name. ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
