"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.
The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace." The Awakening, S. 57
[Edna Pontellier:] "By all the codes which I am acquainted with, I am a devilishly wicked specimen of the sex. But some way, I can't convince myself that I am. I must think about it."
The Awakening, S. 138
