“We are fools,” I said, ” when we love. I was terrified of losing her. I thought I saw her changing–I do’t know if she really was, but I couldn’t bear the uncertainty any longer. I ran towards the finish just like a coward runs towards the enemy and wins a medal. I wanted to get death over.”

-Graham Greene, The Quiet American
