The Woman in White - Wilkie Collins

"Who cares for his causes of complaint? Are you to break your heart to set his mind on ease? No man under heaven deserves these sacrifices from us women. Men! They are the enemies of our innocence and peace - they drag us away from our parents´ love and our sisters´ friendship - they take us body and soul to themselves, and fasten our helpless lives to theirs as they chain up a dog to his kennel. And what does the best of them give us in return? Let me go, Laura - I´m mad when I think of it!"


I´ve gotta say, I love Marian.
