You might recognise:
'It was a bright day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.'
But what about:
'Time, like an ever-rolling stream'
Or even:
'I am soft sift / In an hour-glass-at the wall / Fast, but mined with a motion, a drift, / And it crowds and it combs to the fall.'

Can you match each to their author? What about their book or poem? Welcome to Nemo's Almanac, the ultimate quiz for bibliophiles. 
With tantalising, elegant quotes arranged around themes from fashion to fire, winter to sunshine, each chapter will test your knowledge and literary instinct - and if that tip-of-your-tongue feeling doesn't materialise into words, you can check the back of the book for answers that will send you on fresh journeys of literary discovery. 
Wonderful, maddening, enlightening, Nemo's Almanac has been the well-guarded secret of the literary world for over a century, beloved by authors and booksellers alike. Now collected in book form, you can experience its fiendishly addictive qualities. Curl up by a fire with your wits about you, stuff the book in your pocket for a trip to the library, or quiz the whole family after dinner. 
Answers: George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four; Isaac Watts, 'O God, Our Help'; Gerard Manley Hopkins, 'The Wreck of the Deutschland'
