A Room with a View

This is my favorite book of all time. And because I've read it/listened to it dozens of times, I thought it was time for me to intermittently offer my favorite quotes for reflection.

Today's ARWAV quote is:

Lucy, too, was perplexed; but she saw that they were in for what is known as "quite a scene," and she had an odd feeling that whenever these ill-bred tourists spoke, the contest widened and deepened till it dealt, not with rooms and views, but with—well, with something quite different, whose existence she had not realized before.

I've only seen the movie - I liked it, especially the element of surprise when I realized that the film was more than a polite, charming, slightly stuffy Victorian costume drama. I think it was when the naked old men started frolicing around that I came to that realization.

HI Julie

It was me from the back on the photo "a room with a view" , what a surprise
But thar room had really a view
it was the old bisshop palace and that was the bisshops room
But nice to place it in connection with that great book.
