Algernon Moncrieff:
I really don't see anything romantic in proposing. It's very romantic to be in love but there's nothing romantic about a definite proposal. Why, one might be accepted. One usually is I believe. Then the whole excitement is over. The very essence of romance is uncertainty.

I really don't see why you should keep a diary at all
00:00:04.615 --> 00:00:06.436
I keep a diary
00:00:06.534 --> 00:00:09.915
in order to enter the wonderful secrets of my life
00:00:10.917 --> 00:00:14.298
If I didn't write them down I should probably forget all about them
00:00:14.404 --> 00:00:18.625
Memory my dear Cecily is the diary that we all carry about with us
00:00:18.724 --> 00:00:21.625
Yes but it usually chronicles the things that have never happened
00:00:21.731 --> 00:00:23.672
and couldn't possibly have happened
00:00:23.779 --> 00:00:26.001
I believe that memory is responsible
00:00:26.146 --> 00:00:28.796
for nearly all the three volume novels that the library sends us
00:00:28.897 --> 00:00:31.863
Oh do not speak slightingly of the three volume novel
00:00:31.969 --> 00:00:35.035
I wrote one myself in earlier days
