Viktor (of Eva): "This is the first of her books. I like it so much. She has written: "One must learn to live. I practice every day. My biggest obstacle is I don't know who I am. I grope blindly. If anyone loves me as I am, I may dare at last to look at myself. For me, that possibility is fairly remote." "
Charlotte: "...All this hatred! Why have you never said anything?" Eva: "Because you never listen. You're a goddamn escapist. You're emotionally crippled. In actual fact, you detest me and Helena. You're shut up inside yourself, and always stand in your own light. I loved you, but you thought I was disgusting, and stupid, and a failure. You managed to injure me for life, just as you are injured. All that was sensitive and delicate, you attacked. All that was alive, you tried to smother. You talk of my hatred. Your hatred was no less. Your hatred is no less. I was little and malleable and loving. You bound me because you wanted my love, just as you want everyone else's love. I was utterly at your mercy. It was all done in the name of love."
Eva (to Charlotte): "...You kept saying you loved me and Papa and Helena. And you were an expert at love's intonations and gestures. People like you are a menace. You should be locked away and rendered harmless. A mother and a daughter. What a terrible combination of feelings and confusion and destruction. Everything is possible and done in the name of love and solicitude. The mother's injuries are to be handed down to the daughter. The mother's failures are to be paid for by the daughter. The mother's unhappiness is to be the daughter's unhappiness. It's as if the umbilical cord had never been cut. Is it so? Is the daughter's misfortune the mother's triumph? Is my grief your secret pleasure?"
