The Growth of Intimacy

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

“The growth of intimacy is like that.  First one gives off his best picture, the bright and finished product mended with bluff and falsehood and humor.  Then more details are required and one paints a second portrait, and a third—long before the best lines cancel out—and the secret is exposed at last; the planes of the picture have intermingled and given us away, and though we paint and paint we can no longer sell a picture.”

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned, 1922
