Sometimes you read something, and it’s just perfect

Piccadilly Circus, London, 1952

Tonight, this is it.

The trouble with a long life is memory. Not necessarily of past loves, although they ache at times, but of places and the way things used to be: the good manners of people, the formality that reigned, and the permanence of rank in society. Most of all, memory reminds one of the energy one used to have, the urge to see it all, experience everything, and meet everyone.
