“Life is both fleeting and dangerous, and there is no point in denying yourself pleasure, or being anything other than what you are.”
What I liked about this book is Vivian’s character in every woman at heart. We may never notice of our own suppression of sexuality, our urges to release from our comfort zone, and our aghast to lose ourselves because we are afraid to make mistakes. This novel has simply present the events of those years of protagonist’s altered course of life. She was a woman showing around living in her golden time and became whoever she truly is.
“Let us not become so cautious that we forget to live.”
“Most marriages are neither heavenly nor hellish, but vaguely purgatorial.”
“Anyway, at some point in a woman’s life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time. After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is.”
“When we are young, Angela, we may fall victim to the misconception that time will heal all wounds and that eventually, everything will shake itself out. But as we get older, we learn this sad truth: Some things can never be fixed. Some mistakes can never be put right – not by the passage of time, and not by our most fervent wishes, either. In my experience, this is the hardest lesson of them all.”
