‘It was a good thing for them, but it wouldn’t be for him.  He’s been over a year thinking it out and studying books about it, and if you have to spend a year worrying and arguing yourself into a thing, that thing’s against your nature.  If he had been cut out for [it], he’d have just sunk down into it months ago, as easy as falling into a feather bed.’

                   -spoken by Uncle Tom, Flora Thompson’s Over to Candleford

 

As easy as falling into a feather bed.
