Anna Karenina Part I, chapter 19
Anna is acting as mediator for her brother and sister-in-law. Oblonsky’s been caught in his relationship with the governess. Dolly is crushed and wants to break up the family. Anna has arrived to save the day.
“I fully realize your sufferings, only there is one thing I don’t know; I don’t know… I don’t know how much love there is still in your heart for him. That you know–whether there is enough for you to be able to forgive him. If there is, forgive him!”
I hope Anna listened closely to her own words. Soon. Very soon. Her husband will have to consider if there’s enough love in his heart to forgive her.
