“Besides” – a quote on love

Contrary to the style that Ernest Hemingway’s writing is known for; he does, in my humble opinion, write quite beautifully about love…

It was lovely in the nights and if we could only touch each other we were happy. Besides all the big times we had many small ways of making love and we tried putting thoughts in the other one’s head while we were in different rooms. It seemed to work sometimes but that was probably because we were thinking the same thing anyway.
