It is very difficult to know people. For men and women are not only themselves, they are also the region in which they were born, the city apartment or farm which they learned to walk, the games they played as children, the old wives' tales they overheard, the food they ate, the schools they attended, the sports they followed, the poets they read, and the God they believed in. You can know them only if you are them.

W. Somerset Maugham
