Reading for Friday 03/10 – 5.14
A very brief reading today, but a very insightful one. I love the description of how Pierre is loved and accepted in the Bolkonsky family. After so long of seeing the dreadful way old Count Bolkonsky treats people, to see his affection for Pierre is amazing.
And can’t we all relate to that last line:
“When Pierre had gone and the members of the household met together and began to express their opinions of him as people always do after a new acquaintance has left, but as seldom happens, no one said anything but what was good of him.”
Okay, maybe we’re the only people that discuss visitors after they’ve left (sorry if that was you!) . . . but I think this chapter rings very true.
