Never Catch the Covert Look

I have been posting too many videos of ephemera these past few weeks. To rectify this: let me quote from Graham Greene’s The Heart of the Matter, though some wags may say the ephemera posting continues. I underlined this passage when I first read it nearly a decade and half ago, and I still stand by it:

He had no sense of responsibility towards the beautiful and the graceful and the intelligent. They could find their own way. It was the face for which nobody go out of his way, the face that would never catch the covert look, the face which would soon be used to rebuffs and indifference that demanded his allegiance. The word “pity” is used as loosely as the word “love”: the terrible promiscuous passion which so few experience.
