wolken 379-381

wolkencitaten uit: Julian Barnes, Flaubert’s Parrot

Clouds shut out the stars; their solitude was complete. (64)

HALBERD: When you see a heavy cloud, never fail to say: ‘It’s going to rain halberds.’ In Switzerland, all the men carry halberds.

Barnes citeert uit: Gustave Flaubert, Bouvard and Pécuchet (87)

An hour from the English coast and the clear sky disappears. Cloud and rain escort you back to where you belong. (105)
