Farewell to a farewell

"Often a man wishes to be alone and a girl wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other, but I can truly say we never felt that. We could feel alone when we were together, alone against the others. It has only happened to me like that once. I have been alone while I was with many ... and that is the way that you can be most lonely. But we were never lonely and never afraid when we were together. I know that the night is not the same as the day: that all things are different, that the things of the night cannot be explained by the day, because they do not exist, and the night can be a dreadful time for lonely people once their loneliness has started."
- Ernest Hemingway, "A Farewell to Arms"
