nulla gloria

Cecília

A glória dos homens é viver em comum e sem desigualdade.

tolas (in)capazes

Cecília

- Não a amo,  e pergunto a mim mesmo porque a não amo - disse. - Porque não há-de ter ela o brio de me desprezar e de me substituir pelo mais ridículo dos homens? Todos são mais dignos do que eu.

- As mulheres são assim. Não sei que aliciante tem o desprezo, que parecem lutar por ele como por uma vitória.

alma de sol

Cecília

[...] chora em frente dele, com os olhos desnudados, afogados nas lágrimas. Olhos que a tornam nua.

nem adversários, nem camaradas - apenas idiotas

Cecília

Enfiando o chapéu na cabeça, saía para um mundo habitado por multidões de homens e mulheres que também haviam enfiado os chapéus nas cabeças, e, sempre que nos encontrávamos nos comboios e metropolitanos, trocávamos o olhar característico de adversários e camaradas que têm de enfrentar toda a espécie de dificuldades para atingir o mesmo objectivo - ganhar a vida.

[a minha na tua ] essência [tua na minha]

Cecília

She thought: This is the stupidest thing I have ever done. And then she thought: It's no stupider than that stupid baby shower I went to [...]  " Jack?" she called to him.

"Yes, Olive?" he called back.

"This is the stupidest thing I've ever done." She didn't know why she had said that.

"The stupidest thing you ever did was go to that baby shower," he called back, and Olive felt stunned for a moment.

The truth is that Olive did not understand why age had brought with it a kind of hard-heartdness toward her husband. But it was something she had seemed unable to help, as though the stone wall that had rambled along between them during the course of their long marriage - a stone wall that separated them but also provided unexpected dips of moss-covered warm spots where sunshine would flicker between them in a sudden laugh of understanding  - had become tall and unyielding, and not providing flowers in its crannies but some ice storm frozen along it instead. In other words, something had come between them that seemed insurmountable. She could, on certain days, point out to herself the addition of a boulder here, a pile of rocks there [...] but she still did not understand why they should walk into old age with this high and horrible wall between them. And it was her fault. Because as her heart become more constricted, Henry's heart became needier, and when he walked up behind her in the house sometimes to slip his arms around her, it was all she could do to not visibly shudder. Stop!, she wanted to shout. (But why? What crime had he been committing, except to ask her love?)

homens

Cecília

She could not stop thinking how stupid that baby shower had been. All women. Why only women at a baby shower? Did men have nothing to do with this business of babies? Olive thought she didn't like women.

She liked men.

She had always liked men.

tomorrow day

Cecília

And so after a while she had sat up and he had said, "Stay, Olive." But she did not stay. "Call me," he said. "I would like it if you called me." She had not called. He could call her if he wanted to. And he had not called [...] He had sent one email with a bunch of question marks in the subject line and nothing more. That was an email? Olive didn't think so.

uma questão de bundas

Cecília

... a propósito do subtema Gata Borralheira: neste ciclo, que devemos tomar como um todo, a heroína e o príncipe desencantam-se mutuamente; nisto consistindo, afinal, o proverbial casamento pelo qual serão felizes para sempre.
