Query: "Resemblances are the shadows of differences" (fwd)

"Resemblances are the shadows of differences"

I hope that the list can help me. I am trying to track down this VN quote,
which I thought was in DESPAIR, but doesn't seem to be. SEBASTIAN
KNIGHT? PALE FIRE? Probably the latter. (I think that there's a "but" in it,
too.) Thanks in advance!
