“It is quite impossible really to let go, in England, of that I am assured.”
“It’s quite true,” said Gerald, “it never is quite the same in England. But perhaps we don’t want it to be – perhaps it’s like bringing the light a little too near the powder-magazine, to let go altogether, in England. One is afraid what might happen, if everybody else let go.”
“My God!” cried Gudrun. “But wouldn’t it be wonderful, if all England did suddenly go off like a display of fireworks.”
“It couldn’t,” said Ursula. “They are all too damp, the powder is damp in them.”
