"I wanted to speak to Saint-Loup, but he was so full of his indignation with the dancer that it clung to the very surface of his eyeballs; like a subcutaneous integument it distended his cheeks, so that his inner agitation expressing itself externally in total immobility, he had not even the elasticity, the 'play' necessary to take in a word from me and answer it."
--The Guermantes Way
