"He was an inch, perhaps two, under six feet, powerfully built, and he advanced straight at you with a slight stoop of the shoulders, head forward, and a fixed from-under stare which made you think of a charging bull."
Joseph Conrad - Lord Jim
Great metaphor in that first line. If you read the first line without the last few words, stopping at head forward, it loses a great deal of its impact. Throw in the charging bull and it makes me want to charge on into the book to find out more about this man. Secondarily, he except for the fact that I'm an inch or two OVER six feet, Conrad could have been describing me!
