In response to Ilona Comes With The Rain, written by Margie on October 04, 1997 at 11:25:46
] "She was calm, but on her face one could see the rigidity of controlled pain that is accepted as the price we must inevitably pay to go on being who we are."

I didn't know about this quote, it is now in my journal. Thanks!!!!
It just struck me as very odd, that that kind of experience doesn't show up in literature more often.
I don't know why but one does come across this to some extent in drama/poetry.
But, it is terrible because sometimes people do not even have the choice between right and wrong, it is then a question of faith.
I think this is particularly tragic with regard to human relationships, for true love between any two people is not common.
Ofcourse, our culture defines love as something that passes and changes, I doubt this is so!
