I have sometimes thought that a woman’s nature is like a great house full of rooms: There is the hall, through which everyone passes going in and out; the drawing room, where one receives formal visits… and in the innermost room, the holy of holies, the soul sits alone and waits for a footstep that never comes.
—Edith Wharton, “The Fulness of Life”
