Transcript of Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

"Most people who knew Baptista Trewthen agreed that there was nothing in her to love, and nothing in her to hate. She did not seem to feel very strongly about anything. But still water runs deep, and nothing had yet happened to make her show what lay hidden inside her, like gold underground."
"She knew he was right, and paid him what he wanted. A week later the workman sent his wife to ask for more money, and again Baptista paid. But when there was a fourth visit, she refused to pay, and shut the door in the man's surprised face."
_"Thank you Mrs.Wace. You´re very kind to me. But here comes my difficulty. I don't like teaching. Ah, you're surprised. That's because I've hidden it from everyone. Well, I really hate the school. The children are awful little things, who make trouble all day long.But even they are not as bad as the inspector.For three months before his visit I woke up several times every night, worrying about it. It's so difficult knowing what to teach and what to leave untaught."
