“I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow, the million moving shapes and cul-de-sacs of shadow. There was shadow in bureau drawers and closets and suitcases, and shadow under houses and trees and stones, and shadow at the back of people’s eyes and smiles, and shadow, miles and miles of it, on the night side of the earth.”—
“I fell in love once, with a boy whose hands far overreached my grasp and whose eyes were deeper blue than the sea.I fell in love once with a man whose touch lasted and lingered for all of eternity. I fell in love once and only once with a heart which beat in synchronization with mine until the fluttered beating of my own heart ceased completely.
I fell in love once, I fell in love forever.”—
