Egyszer csak találkozunk vele....-Egyszer csak találkozunk vele-ismételte meg Rodolphe-, egyszer, hirtelen, mikor már lemondtunk róla.

Nem beszélünk, kitaláljuk egymás gondolatát. Egymást látjuk álmunkban. (És ránézett Emmára.) Szóval, itt van, itt van az a kincs, amit annyit kerestünk, itt, elottünk, csillog, villog. De mégse tudjuk biztosan, nem merjük elhinni, káprázik a szemünk, mint mikor suru sötétbol kilépünk a fényre."

During the frenzied press speculation about the identity of the murderer, a Dundee cake had appeared, followed swiftly by a Battenberg and a Lemon Drizzle.

When he had last seen his wife, Elliot Norther noticed that she had been putting the finishing touches to an impressive, triple-tiered wedding cake, beating a batch of royal icing into a sickly paste."

If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky."
