"We Mortals"

De Fonk                                               Federica Capace

 "We mortals, men and women,  
devour many a disappointment between breakfast and dinner-time;
 Keep back the tears and look a little pale about the lips,
 and in answer to inquiries say, "Oh, nothing!" 
Pride helps; and pride is not a bad thing
 when it only urges us to hide our hurts,-
 not to hurt others."
-George Eliot
