The quote is from Dorothy Sayers’ wonderful Gaudy Night (a Peter Wimsey novel, but third in the Harriet Vane + Peter Wimsey novels which should be read as follows: Strong PoisonHave His CarcaseGaudy Night, and Busman’s Honeymoon, and are wonderful).

How fleeting are all human passions when compared with the massive continuity of ducks.
