About Closeness

“The memory of that event has only just come back to me, now doubly
painful: regret for a vanished past and, above all, remorse for lost
opportunities. Mithra-Grandchamp is the women we were unable to love,
the chances we failed to seize, the moments of happiness we allowed to
drift away. Today it seems to me that my whole life was nothing but a
string of those small near misses: a race whose result we know
beforehand but in which we fail to bet on the winner.”
