Daily Dose

From The Rise of Silas Lapham, by William Dean Howells


"'Well, it's too late now, mother,' said the girl. 'Perhaps it isn't so bad as you think.'
'Well, we must stand it, anyway,' said Mrs. Lapham, with the grim antique Yankee submission.
'Oh yes, we've got to stand it,' said Penelope, with the quaint modern American fatalism."

From Chapter IX
