“Norah had become aware of an accretion of discouragement, that she had awakened in her twentieth year to her solitary state of non-belonging, understanding at last how little she would be allowed to say. … Norah took up the banner of goodness – goodness not greatness. Perhaps because there was no other way she could register her existence.”  Unless -Carol Sheilds

“‘Norah has simply succumbed to the traditional

refuge of women without power: she has accepted in its stead complete

powerlessness, total passivity, a kind of impotent piety. In doing nothing, she has

claimed everything’” –Unless -Carol Sheilds
