dream: novel's last line

In my dream, this was very clearly the last line of a novel. It's also the only piece that I remember. I awoke, knowing that I needed to write it down. And now that I look at it, I think it must be a happy ending to steampunk SF.

Apparently, the Language Log articles on the subject (and the collection they reference) had more of an impact than I thought.
