“She stood in the mirror portrait very near Margaret, close next to her, good as a mother or a friend.”
Ida Hattemer-Higgins, The History of History

“Going around in life using German, which Margaret had learned only a few years before, was like walking around in high heels--although it drove up the aesthetic rush of going out on the town, it was dreadfully uncomfortable after a while, and there were certain places you couldn't go”
Ida Hattemer-Higgins, The History of History

“Even if you cannot forgive yourself, and by some poor luck you cannot forgive anyone else either, and there is no vengeance to be had in this baneful world that is slowly suffocating on its own past, there might still be a paradox of goodness”
Ida Hattemer-Higgins, The History of History
