Izzy (reading Whitefoot the Woodmouse to Caroline):
Whitefoot believes in getting the most from the present. The things which are past are past, and that is all there is to it. There is no use in thinking about them. As for the things of the future, it will be time enough to think about them when they happen.
Izzy (pausing): Whoa, that is one smart little mouse.
::moment of silence::
Caroline (piping up from the back seat): Izzy, I don't hear the story.
Izzy: I'm still reading it.
Caroline: No, you're not. You're thinking about it.
