Anna Karenina Update #1

Recent quote I enjoyed:

(From Part 3, Chapter 7, talking about the character Darya Alexandrovna Oblonsky)

Those joys were so small that they passed unnoticed, like gold in sand, and at bad moments she could see nothing but the pain, nothing but sand; but there were good moments too when she saw nothing but the joy, nothing but gold.”
