“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”

Adalene Joy liked a quote
Adventures of the Ingenious Alfanui by Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio
“They had painted a lady leaning her arms on the sill of the window. This lady was waiting for a husband. Her flesh was slack and she was some forty-five years old. Perhaps she had been waiting since she was fifteen. A rose and mauve lady that had not yet gathered her flesh and her beauty into dark clothes, and still waited, like a rose stripped of its petals, with her faded colors and her artificial smile, bitter as a grimace.”
Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio
