bleak: pg. 104, "I was assailed by memories of a life that wasn't mine anymore, but one in which I'd found the simplest and most lasting joys."

Wanted: pg 35, “She was wearing a pair of my pajamas with the sleeves rolled up. When she laughed I wanted her again. A minute later she asked me if I loved her.

Trusting: p. 32, "He [Raymond] asked if I thought she was cheating on him, and it seemed to me she was; if I thought she should be punished and what I would do in his place, and I said you can't ever be sure, but I understood his wanting to punish her."
Trusting: p. 33 "I got up. Raymond gave me a very firm handshake and said that men always understand each other.”

Negative: p. 102, “For if in the course of what has been a long career I have had occasion to call for the death penalty, never as strong as today have I felt this painful duty made easier, lighter, clearer by the certain knowledge of a sacred imperative and by the horror I feel when I look into aman’s face and all I see is a monster.”
