There was even something to look forward to when school started - renewals of old feuds and friendships, weeks of learning again what one half forgot in the long summer. Fall was hot-supper time with everything to eat one missed in the morning when too sleepy to enjoy it.

I'd be kindly obliged if you'd let me have supper some other time.

— Sylvia Townsend Warner
