He couldn‘t tell what responsibility might descend on l him when his memory returned. Life is broken as a rule to every man gently; duties accumulate so slowly that we hardly know they are there. Even a happy marriage is a thing of slow growth; love helps to make imperceptible the imprisonment of a man, but in a moment, by order, would it be possible to love a stranger who entered bearing twenty years of emotional claims? Now, with no memories nearer than his boyhood, he was entirely free. It wasn’t that he feared to face himself; he knew what he was and he believed he knew the kind of man the boy he remembered would have become. It wasn’t failure he feared nearly so much as the enormous tasks that success might confront him with. (p. 114)
