“At the end of what is called ‘the sexual life’ the only love which has lasted is the love that has accepted everything, every disappointment, every failure and every betrayal, which has accepted even the sad fact that in the end there is no desire so deep as the simple desire for companionship.”

— Graham Greene, “May We Borrow Your Husband?”
(As quoted in The New York Times Book Review, Oct. 17, 2004.)
