There was with her an overwhelming feeling of irresponsibility. There was the shock of the unexpected and unaccustomed. There was her husband's reproach looking at her from the external existence. There was Robert's reproach making itself felt by a quicker, fiercer, more overpowering love, which had awakened within her toward him. ...There was a dull pang of regret because it was not the kiss of love which had inflamed her, because it was not love which had held this cup of life to her lips. (Chopin, Ch. 28)
