final-精读三下

Love is a fallacy

final-精读三下

She was, to be sure, a girl who excited the emotions, but I was not one to let my heart rule my dad.

She was beautiful and attractive enough to arouse the desires and passions of men, but the narrator didn’t pick her out for this. He wouldn’t let the emotion take the other hand of reason.

She was not yet of pin-up proportions, but I felt sure that time would supply the lack

She was not yet as beautiful as a pin-up girl but I felt sure she would become beautiful enough after some time.

She had an erectness of carriage, an ease of bearing, a poise that clearly indicated the best of breeding.

She walked with her head and body erect and moved in a natural and balanced way –all this showed she was well educated and trained in manners and social behavior.

If you were out of the picture, the field would be open.

If you stop dating her, others would be free to compete for her friendship.

Maybe somewhere in the crater of her mind, a few embers still smoldered. Maybe somehow I could fan them into flame.

Perhaps there is still some intelligence left in Polly’s empty mind. Perhaps I could develop the little intelligence still existing in Polly’s mind.

I had all the facts at my finger tips.

I was completely familiar with all the facts.
