The Mole had been working very hard all the morning, spring-cleaning his little home. First with brooms, then with dusters; then on ladders and steps and chairs, with a brush and a pail of whitewash; till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of whitewash all over his black fur, and an aching back and weary arms. Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.
The Wind in the Willows
Opening lines, Ch. 1.

The Wind in the Willows

There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
The Wind in the Willows
Rat, Ch. 1.
The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated. By the side of the river he trotted as one trots, when very small, by the side of a man who holds one spell-bound by exciting stories; and when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea.
The Wind in the Willows
Ch. 1.

The Wind in the Willows
Ch. 1.
Weasels - and stoats - and foxes - and so on. They're all right in a way - I'm very good friends with them - pass the time of day when we meet, and all that - but they break out sometimes, there's no denying it, and then - well, you can't really trust them, and that's the fact.
The Wind in the Willows
Rat, Ch. 1.
"Beyond the Wild Wood comes the Wide World," said the Rat. "And that's something that doesn't matter, either to you or me. I've never been there, and I'm never going, nor you either, if you've got any sense at all."
The Wind in the Willows
Ch. 1.
All along the backwater,
Through the rushes tall,
Ducks are a-dabbling,
Up tails all!
The Wind in the Willows
Ducks Ditty by Rat, Ch. 2.
Glorious, stirring sight! The poetry of motion! The real way to travel! The only way to travel! Here today - in next week tomorrow! Villages skipped, towns and cities jumped - always somebody else's horizon! O bliss! O poop-poop! O my! O my!
The Wind in the Willows
Toad, Ch. 2.
Toad talked big about all he was going to do in the days to come...Toad talked big about all he was going to do in the days to come, while stars grew fuller and larger all around them, and a yellow moon, appearing suddenly and silently from nowhere in particular, came to keep them company and listen to their talk.
The Wind in the Willows
Ch. 2.
