"You bet on a relationship, it fails; you go on to the next relationship, it fails too: and maybe what you lose is not two simple minus sums but the multiple of what you staked. That's what is feels like, anyway. Life isn't just addition and subtraction. There's also the accumulation, the multiplication, of loss, of failure." (page 113)
