    • 1919 October 20, Virginia Woolf, chapter VI, in Night and Day, London: Duckworth and Company [], OCLC 598428, page 81:
      Mrs. Seal wandered about with newspaper cuttings, which seemed to her either "quite splendid" or "really too bad for words." She used to paste these into books, or send them to her friends, having first drawn a broad bar in blue pencil down the margin, a proceeding which signified equally and indistinguishably the depths of her reprobation or the heights of her approval.
