“I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”
“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”
“I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.”
“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.”
“He knew his mind would never again be free to romp like the mind of God. That falling in love would change his destiny forever” And then I just let myself go.
