Quote of the Day (Charles Dickens, on Whispering)

“One disagreeable result of whispering is that it seems to evoke an atmosphere of silence, haunted by the ghosts of sound—strange cracks and tickings, the rustling of garments that have no substance in them, and the tread of dreadful feet that would leave no mark on the sea-sand or the winter snow.”— Charles Dickens, Bleak House (1853)
