References in classic literature ?
Although schoolmistresses' letters are to be trusted no more nor less than churchyard epitaphs; yet, as it sometimes happens that a person departs this life who is really deserving of all the praises the stone cutter carves over his bones; who IS a good Christian, a good parent, child, wife, or husband; who actually DOES leave a disconsolate family to mourn his loss; so in academies of the male and female sex it occurs every now and then that the pupil is fully worthy of the praises bestowed by the disinterested instructor.
Clearly some animals are more human and deserving than others, but the sentimental conclusion where Sprout departs this life in the knowledge that her adopted fledgling is safe will bring a tear to many a young eye.
