FDTD MEME: [3/6 quotes]
"It’s all your fault, […] you wanted to leave with all the money."
Yet somehow, each time I enter the stage, as I’m faced with the audience who laughs or sneers, I’m struck with the loneliness that I can only imagine a woman like Curley’s wife must feel — the desperation for conversation, respect, and above all, dignity. Each time, I’m caught off-guard when I lose it.
Helen being surnamed Adrestia, “she whom none can escape.” Nemesis (who is Helen’s mother in some places) to Adrestia as Phobos is to Deimos, with all four as children of Aphrodite and Ares.
