"By all means accept the invitation to hell, should it come.  It will not take you far– from Cambridge to hell is only a step; or at most a hop, skip, and jump.  But now you are evading– you are dodging the issue…. after all, Cambridge is hell enough."

Great Circle, a 1933 novel by Conrad Aiken (father of Joan Aiken, who wrote The Shadow Guests)
