Gudrun Brangwen: Yes, l have and l do.
Loerke: Have you known what it was to lie in bed for three days because you had nothing to eat... in a room with three other families and a toilet in the middle... a big pan with a plank on it... and your father making love to a street whore in the corner?

Gudrun Brangwen: The whole point of a lover... is to reach a complete understanding of sensual knowledge.
