Brideshead Revisited

02 Jan

“….as i lay in that dark hour, i was aghast to realize that something within me, long sickening, had quietly died, and felt as a husband might feel, who, in the fourth year of his marriage, suddenly knew he had no longer any desire, or tenderness, or esteem, for a once-beloved wife; no pleasure in her company, no wish to please, no curiosity about anything she might ever do or or think; no hope of setting things right, no self reproach for the disaster.”

Captain Charles Ryder
