THE SECRET OF MRS. LONDON, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072KRP7MN

1. “Dearest Mate-Women, whose efficient hands I love. The hands that have worked for me for so many hours… swiftly and deftly and beautifully in the making of music and the rough seas, that do not tremble on a trigger, that are strong on the reins of an untamed Marquesan stallion. The hands that are sweet as they pass through my hair, firm with comradeship as they grip mine, and soothe as only they of all hands in the world can soothe.” The Road, 1907

2. “You know. You have helped me bury the ‘Long Sickness’ and the ‘White Logic.’ John Barleycorn, 1913

3. “We, too, have made this voyage together, known the winter North Atlantic… and the Great West Wind off the Horn. And we ‘made westing’, as we have made westing all the years since we first loved.” The Mutiny of the Elsinore, 1913

4. “This is our “Book of Love” here in our Valley of the Moon, where we have known our love since that day you rode with me to the divide of the Napa hills. Ay, and before that, before that.” The Valley of the Moon, 1913

5. “The years slide together in a long backward trail, and yet you and I remain, welded with our arms about each other, unafraid of any future.” The Night Born, 1913

6. “…I find but one vindication for living, one bribe for living, and that vindication is you. The bribe is you.” The Abysmal Brute, 1913

7. “I am still filled with the joy of your voice that was mine last night when you sang. There are fibersounds in your throat… that I love as madly as I have always loved the rest of you.” Smoke Bellow, 1912.

8. “After it all, and it all, and it all, here we are, all in all, all in all. Turtles of Tasman, 1916

9. “The years pass. You and I pass. But yet our love abides more firmly, more deeply, more surely, for we have built our love for each other, not upon sand, but upon rock.” Little Lady of the Big House, 1916.
