"I fell in love when I was 17…
A foolish girl with romantic notions
about the life of a religious,
but my love was passionate.
Over the years my feelings have changed.
He’s disappointed me.
We’ve settled into a life of peaceful indifference.
The old husband and wife who sit side by side on the sofa,
but rarely speak. He knows I’ll never leave Him.
This is my duty.
But when love and duty are one,
then grace is within you."
-The Mother Superior in "The Painted Veil"
