In Isak Dinesen's wonderful book, "Out of Africa", there's a fantastic scene between principles. Dinesen asks a friend of the "great white hunter", Dennis, what makes him draw a line? She's in love with him and is trying to sort out being minor Danish royalty by marriage from the weird complexities of African/European politics of the time. The friend is a hunting companion, worked through a lot of problems together in the bush.

His answer was quite simple. Dennis will loan you a book, but you damn well better return it.

Opening post makes no sense. How can there be a scene "between principles"??

I just whack the neck of the bottle on the edge of the bar, and drink from the jagged edge.
