When two persons quarrel it is because they got on a shade too well. Superficial relations are always satisfactory, whereas intimacy makes the slightest variation keenly felt. We must not forget that intimacy resides in a permitted indiscretion, proffered or invited, whose limits are ill defined : one that produces greatly varying responses and needs watching with punctilious care for it to be exercised with impunity and without secret consequences that can be highly dangerous to friendship. * When relations between two sensitive people are becoming intimate, there is a curious mixture of a fear of not being understood and a dread of being understood too well.
Insult is the easiest, and most traditional, mode of "poetic" exaltation. * The ballistics of insult. As seen by a witness posted sufficiently far off, an insult does not settle on the point it's aimed at; each jet of spittle describes a closed curve. * Hide your god.

But the first step is to discover them; for people take care to hide the gods they really worship. * ODDS AND ENDS If the Ego is hateful, "Love your neighbor as yourself" becomes a cruel irony.

ODDS AND ENDS Never too subtle, because things insist on subtlety; never too simple, because our life and acts enjoin simplicity. * A truly "exact" mind can understand only itself, and only in certain states. * Most people stop at the first stages of their trains of thought, with the result that in the end their whole mental life is found to have consisted of beginnings.
