Quote:
"your new friend looks like a poet," said weeks, with a thin
smile on his careworn, bitter mouth.

"he is a poet."

"did he tell you so? in america we should call him a pretty fair
specimen of a waster."

"well, we're not in america," said philip frigidly.

"how old is he? twenty-five? and he does nothing but stay in
pensions and write poetry."

"you don't know him," said philip hotly.

"oh yes, i do: i've met a hundred and forty-seven of him."

"how can you have known a hundred and forty-seven of him?" asked
philip seriously.

"i've met him in the latin quarter in paris, and i've met him in
pensions in berlin and munich. he lives in small hotels in perugia
and assisi. he stands by the dozen before the botticellis in
florence, and he sits on all the benches of the sistine chapel in
rome. in italy he drinks a little too much wine, and in germany he
drinks a great deal too much beer. he always admires the right thing
whatever the right thing is, and one of these days he's going to
write a great work. think of it, there are a hundred and forty-seven
great works reposing in the bosoms of a hundred and forty-seven great
men, and the tragic thing is that not one of those hundred and
forty-seven great works will ever be written. and yet the world goes
on."

weeks spoke seriously, but his gray eyes twinkled a little at
the end of his long speech, and philip flushed when he saw that the
american was making fun of him.

"you do talk rot," he said crossly.

We agreed that the wind coming out of the northwest was funneling through the pass at least 130 miles per hour. We remembered that a wind of such velocity, combined with the -30 -45 air temperature outside our cave, created an equivalent wind-chill temperature somewhere off the end of the chart; the last figure on the chart was minus 148.

"One hundred and forty-eight degrees below zero."

It was frightening to say, but the worst was over, we thought.

Nakama no kazu wa sorya yappari zettai gacchiri
(Really, when it comes to friends, absolutely )

Ooi hou ga ii!
(more would be best! )

Gutaitekini wa sorya hakkiri kikkari tappuri
(definitely, it's clear the most you could have is)

Hyaku-gojuu-ichi!
(one-hundred and fifty-one!)

Sukoshi yuuki ga arya bacchiri shikkari nikkori
(if you have a little courage, you can be certain)

Nakama wo getto!
(you'll get friends!)

Dakedo mo tamanya arya?
(but if you only occasionally do?)

Ukkari sukkari gakkuri
(you'll inadvertantly be completely heart broken)

Nakama ni"getto"!
(friends will run away!)

Kimi-tachi to no deai wa zenbu chanto oboete-ru
(I remember meeting you guys perfectly)

Kizutsuke atta koto mo atta kedo
(whatever feelings were hurt were hurt, but)

Sore wa (e~to) wasureta
(um, I forgot about that)

Madamada takusan
(there's still much, much more)

Kanarazu doko ka~ ni
(definitely out there somewhere )

Nakama wa iru hazu
(but my friends should be here)

Hyaku-gojuu-ichi no yorokobi
(one-hundred and fifty-one joys)

Hyaku-gojuu-ichi no yume
(one-hundred and fifty-one dreams)

Hyaku-gojuu-ichi no omoide
(one-hundred and fifty-one memories)

Mezashite~ ganbaro!
