He decided then that he would love her forever no matter what came to pass. It was not so much a matter of deciding as accepting the inevitability of it.

After a time I found that I could almost listen to the silence, which had a dimension all of its own.

Do so with gusto, because my God, there’s nothing sorrier than gusto-less experience. Know yourself. Love yourself. Be a good friend. Be a kid of hope and substance. Be a kid of appetite.
