from Man & Superman play by George Bernard Shaw
Do you mean to say that you went on in the same way with other girls?
No. I had enough of that sort of romantic tomfoolery with Rachel.
[unconvinced] Then why did you break off our confidences and become quite strange to me?
[enigmatically] It happened just then that I got something that I wanted to keep all to myself instead of sharing it with you.
I am sure I shouldn’t have asked for any of it if you had grudged it.
It wasn’t a box of sweets, Ann. It was something you’d never have let me call my own.
