Captain Jas. Hook Quotes in Peter Pan
Most disquieting reflection of all, was it not bad form to think about good form? His vitals were tortured by this problem. It was a claw within him sharper than the iron one.

And his shoes were right, and his waistcoat was right, and his tie was right, and his socks were right.
