Here is an excerpt in which Nick recalls his initial encounter: "If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was somthing gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away...it was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again."
