In Ernest Hemingway's book The Sun Also Rises, two of the main characters, Jake Barnes and Lady Brett are riding in a taxi in Madrid, Spain. They were talking of past times, about things that might have been and accepting things, unfulfilled yearnings as sometimes that is just how life happens. Sometimes that is just the condition of life.
Brett says to Jake:
"We could have had such a good times together." Brett replies, "Yes. "Isn't it pretty to think so?"
You ever had things....that at least it was "pretty to think so?" You are pretty unusual if not.
