Keeping the house warm

'These loves were strong and painfully delicious; they occupied all our thoughts but I think we all realised they would be superceded in time by real people. They were to keep the house warm... for its eventual occupants.'
Nancy Mitford The Pursuit of Love
I think one of the reasons I enjoy reading novels is for the moment when you read something and it fits your life, clarified an experience, puts words where it had just been a feeling. This is one of those times.
