Children's author Hugh Lofting referred to a seat in this passage from his novel The Story of Doctor Dolittle; “He came strolling down the gravel-walk, humming a sad song, till he reached a stone seat right under the tree where the parrot and the monkey were hiding.”

Children's author and playwright L. Frank Baum referred to a seat in this passage of his novel Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz; “At once a little girl rose from her seat and walked to the door of the car, carrying a wicker suit-case in one hand and a round bird-cage covered up with newspapers in the other, while a parasol was tucked under her arm.”

Famous quotes containing the word literature:

    All men are lonely. But sometimes it seems to me that we Americans are the loneliest of all. Our hunger for foreign places and new ways has been with us almost like a national disease. Our literature is stamped with a quality of longing and unrest, and our writers have been great wanderers.
    Carson McCullers (1917–1967)

    One thing that literature would be greatly the better for
    Would be a more restricted employment by authors of simile and
    metaphor.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)
