How do you feel today?    I feel ...

Well do I remember how, on the last day of the holidays, I used always to rise early, and think that I had got twelve more whole hours of happiness, and how those hours used to pass me with mercifully slow feet. . . . Three more hours! . . . Sixty more minutes! . . . Five! . . .

This quote is linked to the event -€“ Back to School

Source Notes: "Going Back to School," More (1899). Beerbohm describes seeing the envy "inscribed" on the face of a "very small, pale boy" at Victoria Station. The boy's expression reminds him of his own fifteen trips back to school. He expresses his relief at having "no construe of Xenophon to prepare . . . nor any ode of Horace to learn, painfully, by heart."
