I have loved no part of the world like this and I have loved no women as I love you. Youre my human Africa. I love your smell as I love these smells. I love your dark bush as I love the bush here you change with the light as this place does so that one all the time is loving something different and yet the same. I want to spill myself out into you as I want to die here.
Famous Quotes from Graham Greene
If only it were possible to love without injury fidelity isnt enough I had been faithful to Anne and yet I had injured her. The hurt is in the act of possession we are too small in mind and body to possess another person without pride or to be possessed without humiliation. In a way I was glad that my wife had struck out at me again I had forgotten her pain for too long and this was the only kind of recompense I could give her. Unfortunately the innocent are always involved in any conflict. Always everywhere there is some voice crying from a tower.
I had to touch you with my hands I had to taste you with my tongue one cant love and do nothing.
Its a strange thing to discover and to believe that you are loved when you know that there is nothing in you for anybody but a parent or a God to love.
Like some wines our love could neither mature nor travel.

The witch like the masked dancers has form but this is simply power a force exerted on a door an influence that drifted after me upstairs and pressed against windows.
