Quotes Cassandra Liked

Graham Greene
“A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

Graham Greene
“Insecurity is the worst sense that lovers feel; sometimes the most humdrum desireless marriage seems better. Insecurity twists meanings and poisons trust.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

Graham Greene
“I measured love by the extent of my jealousy.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

Graham Greene
“I want men to admire me, but that's a trick you learn at school--a movement of the eyes, a tone of voice, a touch of the hand on the shoulder or the head. If they think you admire them, they will admire you because of your good taste, and when they admire you, you have an illusion for a moment that there's something to admire.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair
