Hello, I am hoping someone may be able to help. Back in the 1960's I 
read the book at college and a section stuck in my mind. It described 
creepers growing up old structures and supporting them as a metaphor for 
the newer generations supporting their elders. Can some one Tell me 
where to find the passage?

I would like to use it in a funeral oration, my own sadly, to encourage 
my children to support and help their mother (and others).

Thanks for your help.
