I have just found a quote when looking up the use of ellipses. It is perfect for my story!
“Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there
was in them! … Was there anything so real as words?”
---Oscar Wilde, in The Picture of Dorian Gray:
How appropriate is that?
Go Oscar Wilde!!! Thank you.
