Quotes: Mood (2)

Mood 1429 "The old people shook their white heads, and said that the earth had grown aged, like themselves, and was no longer capable of wearing the warm smile of summer on its face." “The Pomegranate-Seeds” Hawthorne, Tanglewood Tales. Nature mirrors age.

Mood 986 "He felt conscious of having put himself…within the influence of an unintelligible power…." Hawthorne: “Rappaccini’s Daughter.”

Mood 999 "…a thousand dim suspicions, which now grinned at him like so many demons." Hawthorne: “Rappaccini’s Daughter.”

Mood 1001 "Giovanni’s rage was quelled into an aspect of sullen insensibility." Hawthorne: “Rappaccini’s Daughter”

Mood 87 "On Edward’s side, more particularly, there was a deficiency of all that a lover ought to look and say on such an occasion…was confused, seemed scarcely sensible of pleasure in seeing them, looked neither rapturous nor gay, said little but what was forced from him by questions, and distinguished Elinor by no mark of affection…he was not in spirits." Austen, Sense and Sensibility. I'll say.
