Context

“The one thing that matters is that we shouldn't betray one another, although even that can't make theslightest difference.»
«If you mean confessing,» she said, «we shall do that, right enough. Everybody always confesses. You can't help it. They torture you.»
«I don't mean confessing. Confession is not betrayal. What you say or do doesn't matter: only feelings matter. If they could make me stop loving you —that would be the real betrayal.»
She thought it over. «They can't do that,» she said finally. «It's the one thing they can't do. They can make you say anything —anything —but they can't make you believe it. They can't get inside you.»” source
