Edward does not feel the need to tell those he loves that he does. They should know it. Actions speak louder than words, and all that. Itís unmanly and unseemly to indulge in all that rot. Edward is not self-indulgent. He has a cold bath every day, with the bathroom window open. He shaves with a straight razor. He rarely puts more than one bar of the electric fire on. He walks everywhere; he took the train to work before he retired. He dislikes the cars cluttering up the narrow, winding roads of the village, and the waste they represent.
