“Darling, I don't want you; I've got no place for you; I only want what you give. I don't want the whole of anyone.... What you want is the whole of me-isn't it, isn't it?-and the whole of me isn't there for anybody. In that full sense you want me I don't exist.”
Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart

“A romantic man often feels more uplifted with two women than with one: his love seems to hit the ideal mark somewhere between two different faces.”
Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart

“But to be quite oneself one must first waste a little time.”
Elizabeth Bowen
