Never Quite Defeated


           ........... Marlowe's type shouldn't get married. Because he is a lonely man, a poor man, a dangerous man and yet a sympathetic man, and somehow none of this goes with marriage. I think he will always have a fairly shabby office, a lonely house, a number of affairs, but no permanent connection ........... I see him always in a lonely street, in lonely rooms, puzzled but never quite defeated.
