"The top of the hill ahead was crowded with winged angels and life-sized effigies of bygone citizens in old-fashioned dress, standing, as if by count, among the columns and shafts and conifers, like a familiar set of passengers collected on the deck of a ship on which they all knew each other---bona-fide members of a small local excursion, embarked on a voyage that is always returning in dreams."  -- Eudora Welty, "The Optimist's Daughter"
