People who read books of this kind usually expect the author to answer the question: "Why did you become a Roman Catholic?" I must distinguish (after the tradition of my Oxford upbringing) with the answer "It depends what you mean by Why." If you ask of a friend "Why did he marry that woman?" you may mean "Why did he marry at all?" or "Why did he choose that wife?"; you may mean "Why did he fall in love with her?" or "Why did he not fall out of love with her?" or simply "Why did he lead her to the altar?"
Ну, конечно, Гэндальф:
"What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is morning to be good on?"
Oxford upbringing даром не проходит.
