This very heart which is mine will forever remain indefinable to me. Between the certainty I have of my existence and the content I try to give that assurance, the gap will never be filled. (MoS14-15) "But I was sure about me, about everything, surer than he could ever be, sure of my life and sure of the death I had waiting for me. Yes, That was all I had. But at least I had as much of a hold on it as it had on me. I had been right, I was still right, I was always right. I had lived my life one way and I could just as well lived it another. I had done this and I hadn't done that. I hadn't done this thing and I had done another. And so? It was as if I had waited all this time for this moment and for the first light of this dawn to be vindicated. Nothing, nothing mattered, and I knew why. So did he." (120) There is no noble love but that which recognizes itself to be both short- lived and exceptional (MoS 55) “Then she wanted to know if I loved her. I answered the sae way I had the last time, that it didn’t mean anything but that I probably didn’t love her.” (41)
