Ah, George Sand

Two summers ago, I wrote a nonfiction piece about George Sand (Amantine Aurore Lucie Dupin) and discovered many of her quotations, including the following one, which I wasn’t able to fit into my essay:

I ask the support of no one, neither to kill someone for me, gather a bouquet, correct a proof, nor to go with me to the theater. I go there on my own, as a man, by choice; and when I want flowers, I go on foot, by myself, to the Alps.
