Da li ljubav motiviše sva naša dela? Da li je ljubav dovoljna ako zaista volimo ali ponavljamo iste greške? Da li je ponos važniji od sreće? Da li su loše navike, nezrelost i nepromišljenost opravdanje za bol koju nanosimo drugima? Zašto smo manje razumni sa članovima svoje porodice nego sa poznanicima? Glavni junak ove novele povremeno traži ili izbegava odgovore na ova i mnoga druga pitanja.
