When you are with me you are content because you love. When you are not with me everything is different. You go back, as it were, to your old life, which is still the same as it was before you knew me. There are a thousand things that will come up everyday to make you unhappy. You must try and understand that the greater part, at least nine tenths of your life, is lived apart from me and every little detail of your everyday life, every word almost, antagonizes your love for me, with the results that you see me, and then you just forget it all.

No doubt I shall catch my foot on a stone, or a projecting ledge, or a root—something which will check that downward—nay upward fall, for a moment, but inevitably I am lost. And I am glad of it. You, with your singularly even and lofty nature, can never understand what I have been, and what it means to me to utterly change my nature.
