Evelyn Waugh Quote
'... I wonder if you remember the story mummy read us the evening Sebastian first got drunk - I mean the bad evening. "Father Brown" said something like "I caught him" (the thief) "with an unseen hook and and invisible line which is long enough to let him wander to the ends of the world and still to bring him back with a twitch upon the thread."'
This quotes The Queer Feet by G. K. Chesterton - Brideshead Revisited (1945)
