“Not a single thought managed to take shape in her mind: for the likeness of this day to the last seemed to her the clearest proof that it would be another quite useless day, a day she would gladly have done without. For a moment she thought that a day like this would be pointless for anyone on earth, then abruptly changed her mind as she realised that thousands of women, after a hard week’s work, or a family quarrel, or even just after catching a cold, would envy her just for having the leisure to rest in comfort.” ― Ismail Kadaré, The File on H
