All Gone Now

All gone now, all over, and himself the survivor.
The Next Big Thing, Ch. 1
All gone now, myself the unlikely and unwilling survivor...
'At the Hairdresser's', Ch. 1

One comes across these echoes in Brookner. It is often the case with prolific writers. Is 'All gone now ... survivor' a quotation, or simply a phrase Brookner liked?
