"Are you suggesting that all women should take her for a model?" "No," I said, "I'm not. Though were we living in Chaucer's time I might; and you would not think it even silly.

And I'd respect him. If he was that sort of man I'd pray God to help me to be the sort of woman he wanted me to be. I'd try. I'd try all day long. I would!" "I wonder," I said. Robina had surprised me.
