But turning the turtle is not making a quick passage except to the other world. (Fr. Marryat, ‘Percival Keene’, ch. XXIII) — Но перевернуться дном вверх - не самый быстрый способ передвижения. Разве только если спешишь на тот свет.

‘Lord Herny, I am not at all surprised that the world says that you are extremely wicked.’ ‘But what world says that?’ asked Lord Henry... ‘It can only be the next world. This world and I are on excellent terms.’ (O. Wilde, ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’, ch. XV) — - Лорд Генри, меня ничуть не удивляет, что свет считает вас в высшей степени безнравственным человеком. - Неужели? - спросил лорд Генри... - Вероятно, вы имеете в виду тот свет? С этим светом я в прекрасных отношениях.
