The Economy of Loss.
That secret stress? The most pedestrian of all: money. I am not yet ready to say goodbye to it all.
It came down to money, the sweetness it added to the soul. Money was a kind of grace. Everywhere he had been, the having of it and the holding of it had set people apart. It gave men a beautiful distant control over the world, and it gave women a poised sense of themselves, an inner light which even old age could not obliterate. -The Master, Colm Toibin
Forgive me my failures.
