A pain stabbed my heart as it did every time I saw a girl I loved who was going the opposite direction in this too-big world.
My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.
Offer them what they secretly want and they of course immediately become panic-stricken.
Avoid the world, it’s just a lot of dust and drag and means nothing in the end.
Accept loss forever.
