Daisy Miller

    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    rustled her skirts in the corkscrew staircases, flirted back with a pretty little cry and a shudder from the edge of the oubliettes, and turned a singularly well-shaped ear to everything that Winterbourne told her about the place.

    She looked at him a moment and then burst into a little laugh. "I like to make you say those things!
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    He had been a little afraid that she would talk loud, laugh overmuch, and even, perhaps, desire to move about the boat a good deal. But he quite forgot his fears; he sat smiling, with his eyes upon her face, while, without moving from her place, she delivered herself of a great number of original reflections

    pretty companion's distinguished air
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    aisy Miller was extremely animated, she was in charming spirits; but she was apparently not at all excited; she was not fluttered; she avoided neither his eyes nor those of anyone else; she blushed neither when she looked at him nor when she felt that people were looking at her.
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    even allowing for her habitual sense of freedom,
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    as he looked at her dress and, on the great staircase, her little rapid, confiding step, he felt as if there were something romantic going forward
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    pretty figure, dressed in the perfection of a soberly elegant traveling costume.
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    I hope you are disappointed, or disgusted, or something!"
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    "Oh, I hoped you would make a fuss!" said Daisy. "I don't care to go now."
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    "That's all I want—a little fuss!"
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    this pretty girl were not so familiar with her courier;
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    she was swinging her great fan about. No; it's impossible to be prettier than that,
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    Her face wore a charming smile, her pretty eyes were gleaming
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    fresh and beautiful young girl
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    the young lady, who was still strolling along in front of them, softly vocalizing.
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    but he said to himself that she was a simple, easily managed person, and that a few deferential protestations would take the edge from her displeasure
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    Her mother was a small, spare, light person, with a wandering eye, a very exiguous nose, and a large forehead, decorated with a certain amount of thin, much frizzled hair. Like her daughter, Mrs. Miller was dressed with extreme elegance; she had enormous diamonds in her ears. So far as Winterbourne could observe, she gave him no greeting—she certainly was not looking at him. Daisy was near her, pulling her shawl straight.
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    ith her commonness, she had a singularly delicate grace.
    Tine Raabyemaglehas quoted2 years ago
    But mother doesn't like any of my gentlemen friends. She's right down timid. She always makes a fuss if I introduce a gentleman. But I DO introduce them—almost always. If I didn't introduce my gentlemen friends to Mother," the young girl added in her little soft, flat monotone, "I shouldn't think I was natural."
