“We are all so afraid, we are all so alone, we all so need from the outside the assurance of our own worthiness to exist. So, for a time, if such a passion come to fruition, the man will get what he wants. He will get the moral support, the encouragement, the relief from the sense of loneliness, the assurance of his own worth. But these things pass away; inevitably they pass away as the shadows pass across sundials. It is sad, but it is so. The pages of the book will become familiar; the beautiful corner of the road will have been turned too many times. Well, this is the saddest story.”
Ford Madox Ford

“Higher than the beasts, lower than the angels, stuck in our idiot Eden.”
Ford Madox Ford, Parade's End

“I know nothing - nothing in the world - of the hearts of men. I only know that I am alone - horribly alone.”
Ford Madox Ford, The Good Soldier
