a good quote from The Golem and the Jinni By Helene Wecker "It will be a novelety she said.A taste of summer:to remind us it'll come again
Surely he thought,they would rather eat something warm when it's cold? But he knew logic would be useless for it was clear that Maryam had organised the entire scheme.Most idealists lived in their own impossible worlds,sealed away from reality. Maryam,it seemed, effortlessly reached out from hers and drew others inside. Her unstudied goodness affected their judgement even to the point of buying large qualities of ice cream in winter. Leave me aloan,he felt like saying.Let me die in peace.But there nothing he could do.She simply decided that an indigent half mad peddler would survive a killing winter if she wished it.He wanted to resent her,but all he felt was an irritated bemusement.
