Thanks to the lovely Lori Dennis for the wonderful Stock.
“When all was over at the cemetery Charles returned to the house. There was no one downstairs. He went up into the bedroom and saw her dress hanging up at the foot of the bed. Then, leaning against the secretaire, he remained there till it was dark, lost in sorrowful meditation. After all, she had loved him.”
- Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary, Ch. 2
