Many divorces are caused by the complete dependence of the female. At first there is the strong sexual attraction that sometimes masquerades a love. Everything goes well until the first financial crisis jars the man’s confidence and threatens the woman’s security. The woman can’t help. All she can be is dependent, because that is what she has been trained to be. Instead of standing beside the man, giving him encouragement by contributing her own efforts, she becomes accusatory and sullen and the sex drive that passed for love is no longer enough to satisfy either of them. If we begin to think and respond as capable human beings able to deal with an even enjoy the challenges of life, then we surely will have something more to contribute to marriage than our bodies.
[On her flight] If I am successful, the merits and demerits can be threshed out then. If not, someone else will do what I have attempted and I’ll pass the problem onto them.

Courage is the price that Life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows is not knows no release
From little things;
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear,
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.

For dull gray ugliness and pregnant hate
Unless we dare
The soul's dominion? Each time we make a choice, we pay
With courage to behold the restless day,
And count it fair.
