‘There's more here, sir, however,’ he said, ‘Than meets the eye. I don't believe in suicide, nor in pure accident, myself.’ (J. Galsworthy, ‘The Man of Property’, part III, ch. VIII) — - Все-таки, - сказал он, - это не так просто, сэр, как кажется на первый взгляд. Я не думаю, чтобы это было самоубийство или просто несчастный случай.

Petkoff: "Your photograph, with the in scription "Raina, to her chocolate Cream-Soldier: a Souvenir". Now you know, there's something more in this than meets the eye; and I'm going to find it out." (B. Shaw, ‘Arms and the Man’, act III) — Петкофф: "А твоя фотография с подписью "Райна своему шоколадному солдатику на память"? Нет, за этим что-то кроется. И я обязательно докопаюсь до истины."
