A favorite excerpt from one of my favorite books. You can take so much from this book, but for some reason this small, small portion always stuck in my head. I guess we’re all fools at some point, right?
Peter: It doesn’t matter much to you, does it?
Peter: What I’ve been doing
Katie: Oh…yes it does, Peter. No, not too much.
Peter: That’s sweet of you.
Katie: But you see, it’s not what you do that matters really, It’s only you.
Peter: Me what?
Katie: Just you here. Or you in the city. Or you somewhere in the world. I don’t know. Just that.
Peter: You know, you’re a fool. You’re technique is something awful
Katie: My what?
Peter: You’re technique. You can’t tell a man so shamelessly, like that, that you’re practically crazy about him.
Katie: But I am.
Peter: But you can’t say so. Men won’t care for you.
Katie: But I don’t want men to care for me.
Peter: You want me to, don’t you?
Katie: But you do, don’t you.
Peter: I do.
