Latest Eva quotes from Autumn Sonata
The mother's injuries are to be handed down to the daughter. The mother's failures are to be paid for by the daughter. The mother's unhappiness is to be the daughter's unhappiness. It's as if the umbilical cord had never been cut.
You managed to injure me for life, just as you are injured.
Maybe everything is already too late.
You're shut up inside yourself and always standing your own light.
There's no dividing line, no insurmountable wall. I know it can't be described. It's a world of liberated feelings. Do you know what I mean? To me, man is a tremendous creation, an inconceivable thought. In man is everything, from the highest to lowest. Everything exists side by side. Realities, not only the reality we perceive with our dull senses, but a tumult of realities arching above each other inside and outside. It's just fear and priggishness to believe in limits. There are no limits, neither to thoughts nor feelings. It's anxiety that sets limits.
Are the daughter's miseries the mother's triumphs?
A mother and a daughter, what a terrible combination.
You said my hair was too long and you had it cut short, it was hideous! Then you thought that I had crooked teeth, and you got me braces, I looked so grotesque! You would buy me books and I would read them and not understand them, and you would make me talk about them, and I would always be afraid that you would show up my stupidity.
You talk of my hatred. Your hatred was no less.
I will never let you vanish out of my life again. I'm going to persist. I won't give up, even if it is too late. I don't think it is too late. It must not be too late.
People like you are a menace. You should be locked away and rendered harmless.
But one thing I did understand: not a shred of the real me could be loved or accepted. I didn't dare to be myself even when I was alone because I hated what was my own.
Is it so? Is the daughter's misfortune the mother's triumph? Is my grief your secret pleasure?
All that was sensitive and delicate, you attacked. All that was alive, you tried to smother.
There can be no forgiveness.
