    "What point is there in having a dozen sons if your own life is miserable and senseless?? Probably people are afraid, afraid of disappearing from this world -- traceless and completely forgotten, so they have children to leave reminders of themselves.? how selfish parents can be.? Then why does it have to be son?? Can't a girl serve equally well as a reminder of her parents?"
    "What do you know about love?? Did you know her well enough before you married her?? Were you sure she was the woman you'd sepnd the rest of your life with??Isn't there someone else who is more suitable for you than Manna?? All those years you waited torpidly, like a sleepwalker, pulled and pushed about by others' opinions, by external pressure, by your illusions, by the official rules you internaltized.? You were misled by your own frustration and passivity, believing that what you were not allowed to have was what your heart was destined to embrace."
    "He realized that the long waiting must have changed her profoundly - from a pleasant young woman into a hopeless spitfire.? No matter how he felt about her now, he was certain she had always loved him.? Perhaps it was the unrequited love that had dragged her down.? Or perhaps it was the suffering and despondency hshe had experienced in the long waiting that had dissolved her gentel nature, worn away her hopes, ruined her health, poisoned her heart, and doomed her. Yes, she has loved you.? But isn't this marriage that has been debilitating her?"
    "It dawned on him that he had never loved a woman wholeheartedly and that he had always been the loved one.? This must have the reason why he knew so little about? love and women.? In other words, emotionally he hadn't grown up.? His instinct and ability to love passionately had withered away before they had had an opportunity to blossom.? if only he had fallen in love soulfully just once in his life, even though it might have broken his heart, paralyzed his mind, made him live in a daze, bathed his face in tears, and drowned him in despair!"
