Word Orgasms

Hm. Word Orgasms. Wordgasms?

Words/phrases in literature that make you scream out in full love of language, making you wish you had written such a thing.

Some examples of books containing the wordgasms (for me):

Lady Chatterley's Lover, D.H. Lawrence

The English Patient, Michael Odaatje (as mentioned before)

"The moon is on him like a skin, a sheaf of water."

The Most Beautiful Woman In Town, Charles Bukowski (Mentioned before here)

Tender Is the Night, F. Scott Fitzgerald

More titles to come later. More word- specific- orgasms to come.
