“There was something sort of bleak about her tone, rather as if she had swallowed an east wind. This I took to be due to the fact that she probably hadn’t breakfasted. It’s only after a bit of breakfast that I’m able to regard the world with that sunny cheeriness which makes a fellow the universal favourite. I’m never much of a lad till I’ve engulfed an egg or two and a beaker of coffee. – “I suppose you haven’t breakfasted?” – “I have not yet breakfasted.” – “Won’t you have an egg or something? Or a sausage or something? Or something?” – “No, thank you.” – She spoke as if she belonged to an anti-sausage league or a league for the suppression of eggs. There was a bit of silence.”
— Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881 – 1975) – English author, journalist, playwright and humorist.
It’s only after a bit of breakfast that we’re able to regard the world with that sunny cheeriness which makes us at peace with the universe!
