“Woman life is so. Watching and losing.” (102)
“Who is the man who can speak to the strong?
Where is the fool who can talk to the wise?
Men who are dead now have learnt this long,
Bitter is wisdom that fails when it tries.” (108)
“Who with the Devil tries to play fair,
weaves the net of his own despair.
Oh, smile; what’s a house between drunkards?” (156)
The deal they make with the devil has tragic consequences.
