Freedom and Confinement Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

Holly suggested she run out to Woolworth's and steal some balloons; she did: and they turned the tree into a fairly good show (8.4).

We're not condoning stealing here, but in some ways the act of stealing represents freedom for Holly. She doesn't have to steal, but she still does because she can. She's just exercising her right to do what she wants, legal or not.
