Quotation of the Week

17th July

Colette, whom Kate enormously admired, had said that friendship, like love, naturally speaks its true language only in a duet. It occurred to her that one of the problems she had begun to encounter in recent years arose from the impossibility of such conversation in the ordinary routine of life. Everyone was either too busy, if they were worth talking to, or too dull, if they were available.

Amanda Cross, The Question of Max (1976)
