Thought for the Day

When loves goes wrong, the survival of the spirit appears
to stand upon endurance, independence, tolerance, solitary grief.
These are tremendously moving qualities, and when they are
called upon, it is usual for the heroine to overshadow
the man who is the origin of her torment.
~ Elizabeth Hardwick
