Portrait Quote

POAL Collateral ClassicThe Portrait of a Lady  chapter 5

In this chapter we learn about Ralph: his education, his admiration of his father, and his illness.

I like him.

I like this quote about him.

Living as he now lived was like reading a good book in a poor translation–a meagre entertainment for a young man who felt that he might have been an excellent linguist

    Ah, Ralph…I love him too, in fact, for me he’s the best among all Isabel’s suitors. Only Ralph could fully understand Isabel, and his love for her is very deep and pure.

      I like Ralph more than I like Isabel. Too bad the story couldn’t be “The Portrait of a Gentleman”.
