“Everything in her life, she could see now, had taken the same turn—as for love, she often puzzled and puzzled, without ever allowing herself to be fully sad, as to what could be wrong with the formula.

“Every woman occasionally wonders what manner of man she has married. No matter how long she has been living with her husband, once in a while he presents a new face. It’s the bunk about women being enigmas and men being just transparent little boys at heart. Or else I’m gullible.” ―Louise Dickinson Rich,We Took to the Woods
