Kate Chopin Quote: “He greatly valued his possessions, chiefly because they were his, and derived genuine pleasure from contemplating a painting, a statuette, a rare lace curtain – no matter what – after he had bought it and placed it among his household gods.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “The delicous breath of rain was in the air.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “A green and yellow parrot, which hung in a cage outside the door, kept repeating over and over: “Allez vous-en! Allez vous-en! Sapristi! That’s all right!” He could speak a little Spanish, and also a language which nobody understood, unless it was the mockingbird that hung on the other side of the door, whistling his fluty notes out upon the breeze with maddening persistence.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “The years that are gone seem like dreams – if one might go on sleeping and dreaming – but to wake up and find – Oh! well! perhaps it is better to wake up, after all, even to suffer, rather than to remain a dupe to illusions all one’s life.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She heard him moving about the room; every sound indicating impatience and irritation. Another time she would have gone in at his request. She would, through habit, have yielded to his desire; not with any sense of submission or obedience to his compelling wishes, but unthinkingly, as we walk, move, sit, stand, go through the daily treadmill of the life which has been portioned out to us.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “He observed his hostess attentively from under his shaggy brows, and noted a subtle change which had transformed her from the listless woman he had known into a being who, for the moment, seemed palpitant with the forces of life. Her speech was warm and energetic. There was no repression in her glance or gesture. She reminded him of some beautiful, sleek animal waking up in the sun.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “I trust it will not be giving away professional secrets to say that many readers would be surprised, perhaps shocked, at the questions which some newspaper editors will put to a defenseless woman under the guise of flattery.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “In the procession I should feel the crushing feet, the clashing discords, the ruthless hands and stifling breath. I could not hear the rhythm of the march.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She felt no interest in anything about her. The street, the children, the fruit vender, the flowers growing there under her eyes, were all part and parcel of an alien world which had suddenly become antagonistic.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Don’t stir all the warmth out of your coffee; drink it.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Edna began to feel like one who awakens gradually out of a dream, a delicious, grotesque, impossible dream, to feel again the realities pressing into her soul. The physical need for sleep began to overtake her; the exuberance which had sustained and exalted her spirit left her helpless and yielding to the conditions which crowded her in.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “The morning was full of sunlight and hope.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “As the devoted wife of a man that worshiped her, she felt she would take her place with a certain dignity in the world of reality, closing the portals forever behind her upon the realm of romance and dreams.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Conditions would some way adjust themselves, she felt; but whatever came, she had resolved never again to belong to another than herself.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She knew that she would weep again when she saw the kind, tender hands folded in death; the face that had never looked save with love upon her, fixed and gray and dead. But she saw beyond that bitter moment a long procession of years to come that would belong to her absolutely. And she opened and spread her arms out to them in welcome.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She reminded him of some beautiful, sleek animal waking up in the sun.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease – of the joy that kills.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She had resolved to never take another step backward.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “It was going to be a beautiful morning, I remember thinking, as I left the house; soft and close, bursting with whispered promises, as only a daybreak in early summer can be.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “There would be no one to live for her during those coming years; she would live for herself.”

Kate Chopin Quote: “And the ladies, selecting with dainty and discriminating fingers and a little greedily, all declared that Mr. Pontellier was the best husband in the world. Mrs. Pontellier was forced to admit that she knew of none better.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “There was with her a feeling of having descended in the social scale, with a corresponding sense of having risen in the spiritual.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “The lovers were just entering the grounds of the pension. They were leaning toward each other as the water oaks bent from the sea. There was not a particle of earth beneath their feet. Their heads might have been turned upside down, so absolutely did they tread upon blue ether.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “The heart jealous of the soul!”
Kate Chopin Quote: “If her talent had been ten-fold greater than it was, it would not have surprised him, convinced as he was that he had bequeathed to all of his daughters the germs of a masterful capability, which only depended upon their own efforts to be directed toward successful achievement.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “The voice of the sea is seductive, never ceasing, whispering, clamoring, murmuring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of solitude; to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Most women are moody and whimsical.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Pirate gold isn’t a thing to be hoarded or utilized. It is something to squander and throw to the four winds, for the fun of seeing the golden specks fly.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Mrs. Pontellier was beginning to realize her position in the universe as a human being, and to recognize her relations as an individual to the world within and about her.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She grew daring and reckless, overestimating her strength. She wanted to swim far out, where no woman had swum before.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “The soul of her youth clamored for its rights; for a share in the world’s glory and exultation.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She liked then to wander alone into strange and unfamiliar places. She discovered many a sunny, sleepy corner, fashioned to dream in.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “One misses the sun on a cloudy day without having thought much about the sun when it was shining.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “I don’t want to part in any ill-humor. But can’t you understand? I’ve grown used to seeing you, to having you with me all the time, and your action seems unfriendly, even unkind. You don’t even offer an excuse for it. Why, I was planning to be together.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She began to do as she liked and to feel as she liked.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “There was with her a feeling of having descended in the social scale, with a corresponding sense of having risen in the spiritual. Every step which she took toward relieving herself from obligations added to her strength and expansion as an individual. She began to look with her own eyes; to see and to apprehend the deeper undercurrents of life. No longer was she content to “feed upon opinion” when her own soul had invited her.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Her marriage to Leonce Pontellier was purely an accident, in this respect resembling many other marriages which masquerade as the decrees of Fate.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Every step which she took toward relieving herself from obligations added to her strength and expansion as an individual.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “But the beginning of things, of a world especially, is necessarily vague, tangled, chaotic, and exceedingly disturbing.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She had all her life long been accustomed to harbor thoughts and emotions which never voiced themselves. They had never taken the form of struggles. They belonged to her and were her own, and she entertained the conviction that she had a right to them and that they concerned no one but herself.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “Romances serve but to feed the imagination of the young; they add nothing to the sum of truth.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She was fond of her children in an uneven, impulsive way. She would sometimes gather them passionately to her heart; she would sometimes forget them.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “But the very passions themselves were aroused within her soul, swaying it, lashing it, as the waves daily beat upon her splendid body. She trembled, she was choking, and the tears blinded her.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “It was the first kiss of her life to which her nature had really responded. It was a flaming torch that kindled desire.”
Kate Chopin Quote: “She was still under the spell of her infatuation. She had tried to forget him, realizing the inutility of remembering. But the thought of him was like an obsession, ever pressing itself upon her. It was not that she dwelt upon details of their acquaintance, or recalled in any special or peculiar way his personality; it was his being, his existence, which dominated her thought, fading sometimes as if it would melt into the mist of the forgotten, reviving again with an intensity which filled her with an incomprehensible longing.”
