“Young People! Do not gloat about your youth, because you have a long and treacherous path to negotiate before you reach the truly lovely part of your life. Your fisrt decades are one long, tiring, demeaning struggle for at least a short turn at the control level. Every day you get savaged by your own wishes. When you finally calm down and accept your lot, you are middle-aged, and happiness most definitely lies more closely ahead, but you still have a few years to go, passing through most arduous longing and regret.”
Irene Dische, The Empress of Weehawken: A Novel

“Für sich selbst eine Ausnahme zu machen ist natürlich die Regel.”
Irene Dische, Clarissas empfindsame Reise
