I'm going to cheat a little bit and do two. I just finished Strong Poison by Dorothy L Sayers and I just have to share something from this book. One of my all-time favorite reads! Here we go from page 75:
It was natural that the conversation should turn to the subject of murder. Nothing goes so well with a hot fire and buttered crumpets as a wet day without and a good dose of comfortable horrors within. The heavier the lashing of the rain and the ghastlier the details, the better the flavour seems to be.
And from the book I'm just starting, The Divine Comedy II: Purgatory by Dante Aligheiri (trans by Dorothy L Sayers) page 75 of the edition, which includes a hefty introduction (actually page 3 of the work itself):
I've shown him Hell with all its guilty herd,
And mean to show him next the souls who dwell
Making purgation here beneath thy ward.
How I have brought him through, 'twere long to tell;
Power from on high helps me to guide his feet
To thee, to see and hear and mark thee well.
