And now I feel like crying, because I really do not understand, and I don’t think I will when I’m older either. It was only when I loved Franz I understood the world, and felt happy. When you love, you’re praying. Everything was quite clear. I wanted to be good. I think you begin things the right way when you want to be good. And I think I’m doing everything wrong now because all I want is for people to be good to me. I want to be loved, everybody wants to be loved; for a thousand people who want to be loved there may perhaps be just one who wants to love. Our Father which art in heaven…my heart is all a lump of grief.
