And here is the unity that appears dramatic to it: it thinks confusedly that its support may one day fail it, while it itself feels eternally revivable. In a scene which has given up being moved, and thinks only of falling in ruins, life becomes anxious and agitated at being able only to revive.

I should like to speak to you again of the sea. But the obstacle remains. The streams go forward; but not she. Listen, don’t be angry, I swear it to you, I wouldn’t dream of deceiving you.
