书中quote<the maid's tragedy>: since i can do no good because a woman, reach constantly at something that is near it.DOROTHEA BROOKthe thing which seemed to her best, she wanted to justify by the completest knowledge, and not to live in a pretended admission of rules which were never acted on. Into the soul-hunger as yet all her youthful passion was poured. The union which attracted her was one that would deliver her from her girlish subjection to her own ignorance, and give her the freedom of voluntary submission to a guide who would take her along the grandest path.We mortals, men and woman , devour many a disappointment between breakfast and dinner-time. Keep back the tears and look a little pale about the lips, and in answer to inquiries say,"oh, nothing !" pride helps us, and pride is not a bad thing when it only urges us to hide our own hurts- not to hurt others.A woman dictates before marriage in order that she may have an appetite for submission afterwards.to be sure, there should be a little devil in womanone can begin so many things with a new person-even begin to be a better man.to me it is one of the most odious things in a girl's life, that there must always be some suppositon of falling in love coming between her and any man who is kind to her, and to whom she is grateful.I suppose a woman is never in love with any one she has always known-ever since she can remember, as a man often is. IT IS ALWAYS SOME NEW FELLOW WHO STRIKES A GIRL.THERE is always a good number who once meant to shape their own deeds and alter the world a little. the story of their coming to be shapen after the average and fit to be packed by the gross, is hardly ever told even in theil consciousness, for perhaps their ardor in generous unpaid toil cooled as imperceptibly as the ardor of other youthful loves, till one day their earlier self walked like a ghost in its old home and made the new furniture ghastly. nothing in the world more subtle than the process of their gradual change.
