And Then There Were None - Vera Claythorne - BBC One
I was not merely pleased; I rejoiced. So full of wit and spirit it was! I should have added "force," hadthe book contained moments of repose, or had it risen to energy only atintervals. But I found that there was no burst of force, but an evenflow, a style that was vigorous and chaste. Nevertheless I noticedfrom time to time your sweetness, and here and there that mildness of yours. Your style is lofty and noble; I want you to keep to this manner and thisdirection. Your subject also contributed something; for this reasonyou should choose productive topics, which will lay hold of the mind andarouse it.

You must allow me to examineit also. You need not be afraid; you shall hear the truth.

It is, indeed, nobler by far to liveas you would live under the eyes of some good man, always at your side;but nevertheless I am content if you only act, in whatever you do, as youwould act if anyone at all were looking on; because solitude prompts usto all kinds of evil.
