December 15, 1919 (Letter to Gerald Brenan)

“To know a human being intimately, to feel their affection, to have their confidences is so absorbing that it’s clearly absurd to think one only has the inclination for one variety. The very contrast of a double relation is fascinating. But the days are too short. And then one has work to do. So one has to abandon some people and the difficulty of choosing is great.” — p. 176
