Quote #10

"I will be very glad to be an American and we’ll go to America won’t we, darling? I want to see Niagara Falls." (38.47)

Whenever Catherine talks about water, we should listen. She doesn’t fear the waterfall the way she does the rain, because the rain is chaotic and the waterfall is controlled. She doesn’t much have to worry about it helping kill people.
