We were crossing the long aqueduct through the lagoons which leads to Venice-Mestre, but there were no signs of the beautiful city, only tall chimneys with pale gas flames hardly visible in the late-afternoon sunlight. I was not expecting my aunt’s outburst.

Regret your own actions, if you like that kind of wallowing self-pity, but never, never despise. Never presume yours is a better morality."
