Selected quotes from The Railway Children:

"Oh!" said Roberta, drawing a long breath; "it was like a great dragon tearing by. Did you feel it fan us with its hot wings?" "I suppose a dragon's lair might look very like that tunnel from the outside," said Phyllis."
"I'd like to marry a lady who had trances, and only woke up once or twice a year."
"Girls are just as clever as boys, and don't you forget it!"
"It's an odd thing - the softer and more easily hurt a woman is the better she can screw herself up to do what has to be done."
