“We are all so afraid, we are all so alone, we all so need from the outside the assurance of our own worthiness to exist.” Ford Madox Ford

For, whatever may be said of the relation of the sexes, there is no man who loved a woman that does not desire to come to her for the renewal of his courage, for the cutting asunder of his difficulties. And that will be the mainspring of his desire for her. We are all so afraid, we are all so alone, we all so need from the outside the assurance of our own worthiness to exist.

 

From The Good Soldier by Ford Madox Ford
